PREFACE

OUCCESSFUL AMERICANS is thoroughly
^ National,- covering every part of the United
States, and puts in enduring form something of the
history of great American merchants, manufacturers,
railroad builders and other great men who have
played an important part in the country s history.
It is not insisted that the work is fully comprehen
sive, but it is thought that it occupies a place of im
portance in a field which has not heretofore been
occupied.

This most admirable collection of contemporary
biography of America s foremost leaders of life and
thought will be an invaluable acquisition to the
world s libraries and historical archives. The
sketches of the leaders of life and thought now at the
helm of America s Ecclesiastical, Civil, Military,
Industrial and Commercial lines of human activity
have been selected with the greatest of care from
current historical works and publications and from
various other sources. As Builders and Merchants
they have built cities and illumined the marts of
trade ; in the field of science and medicine they have



obtained great prominence; in the arena of states
manship they have produced men of thought and
men of action, while at the bar and in the admini
stration of Justice they have shown erudition and
wisdom. As clergymen, educators and lecturers they
have occupied high places; and as musicians, com
posers, artists, authors and poets they have contrib
uted profusely to social life.

This volume is submitted to the public in the
confidence that the careers herein described will be
found stimulating to patriotism; and a potent factor
in cheering and inspiring the efforts of rising gen
erations.
