American National Biography Online
Offers portraits of more than 18,700 men and women – from all eras and walks of life – whose lives have shaped the nation. This resource is updated semi-annually with new entries and revisions of previously published entries to enhance their accuracy and currency.
Appended to each article is a descriptive bibliography, which may include mention of primary sources, the most useful published biographies, articles or monographs about specific aspects of the person’s career, and obituaries, to guide interested readers on where to look for more information. Some entries are also accompanied by an ‘online resources section’ with links to relevant materials.
