William Eyres and Joseph Johnson were both Unitarians. Eyres’s printing press at Warrington published textbooks, storybooks, poetry and drama for the academy’s students. Johnson - whose accomplishments included establishing the London Medical Journal in 1783 - published many rational works on subjects such as religion, politics, science, medicine and education. He also promoted female authors and was a mentor to (Anglican) feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who likened women’s oppression to that of slaves, a viewpoint she articulated in her most well-known book, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, published in 1792 by Johnson.
