FOREWORD



f I ^HE purpose of Herringshaw's City Blue Book
of Biography is to present in one volume, and
in condensed form, a standard work of Biographical
Reference, giving appropriate notices of all those
who are identified in any capacity with Chicago's
Educational, Social, Civil, Professional, Financial,
Industrial and Commercial affairs.

The work contains an Alphabetical Record of
Chicago's Business Men, Merchants, Manufacturers,
Builders, Financiers, Lawyers and Jurists, Physicians,
Clergymen, Educators and other Progressive Citizens
who hold positions of trust and honor in their chosen
vocation in the various lines of human effort.

These Representative Citizens of character and
influence, by their enterprise and thrift, by their
activity and sagacity in business, and by their zeal
in educational, social and public matters, have con-
tributed vastly to the moral, spiritual and material
prosperity of the community in which they live.

As Builders and Merchants, they have erected
buildings and illumined the marts of trade; in the



field of Science and Medicine they have obtained
great prominence; in the arena of Statesmanship they
have produced men of thought and men of action;
while at the Bar and in the administration of Justice
they have shown erudition and wisdom. As Clergy-
men, Educators and Lecturers they have occupied
high places; and as Artists, Musicians, Composers
and Authors they have contributed profusely to
social life.

Of many men more might have been written.
But where not enough has been said, the fault must
be attributed to the indifference of the person mostly
interested. The Editor is only too pleased to receive
Data to the end that each and everyone may receive
due recognition and an authentic record.

We feel confident that this authentic collection
of Chicago's foremost leaders of Life and Thought
will be an invaluable acquisition to current Litera-
ture, and will meet with a hearty welcome at the
hands of an intelligent public.

With such continued and courteous co-operation
and support our best efforts will be directed in mak-
ing Herringshaw's City Blue Book of Biography
more and more complete from year to year.
