"John Wyeth (b. Cambridge, Mass., 31 March 1770; d. Philadelphia, Pa., 23 Jan 1858) was a publisher, real estate developer, and first postmaster of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Wyeth left New England as a young man, traveling briefly to Santo Domingo, then to Philadelphia, before settling in Harrisburg (1792). There he became publisher of a newspaper, The Oracle of Dauphin, that ran until 1827. Wyeth, a Unitarian, was a leading citizen of Harrisburg before moving to Philadelphia around 1826. His musical compilations were highly successful: according to one report, 125,000 copies of the many editions of Wyeth's Repository were sold and 25,000 of Wyeth's Repository, Part Second." - ibid.
