Printer, James, 1640 - 1709

James Printer, alias Wawaus / Jumet, was the son of Naoas, a member of a prominent Nipmuc family and Christian convert from Hassanamesit.  Brought to live in an English household when he was five years old, Printer later attended the Indian Charity School at Harvard College.  He became a printer's apprentice for Samuel Green at the College's Press in 1659.  There, Printer helped John Eliot translate the Bible into the Massachusett language and set the type on the first American Bible to be published in the colonies and on other religious tracts.
