KIRKUS REVIEW

The only one volume dictionary of American biography -- 1100 pages in length, containing over 5,000 individual biographies, terse, comprehensive, spanning the period from Colonial times to the present, excluding living people. Its greatest value for study purposes is the inclusion of bibliographical notes on each person included. Indispensable reference tool for libraries, schools.
