SCOPE AND PLAN OF THE BOOK

The collecting of data for this register has been in progress nearly
four years. The number of persons solicited for inclusion in the volume
is 7061; the number responding and entered in the book is 2746. It
will be seen, therefore, that the volume contains many less than three-
sevenths the number of names the Editorial Office desired should go in,
and the Office list itself is undoubtedly too short. Only those who have
responded to requests are included in the volume. Effort has been
made to complete the entries, often by follow-ups and several requests;
when the persons do not respond, it is assumed that they prefer not to be
included. It has been a difficult time in which to collect the information
because of the distractions and the changes in addresses due to the call to
war.

The field covered by such a register has no definite boundaries. In
general, it has been the desire to compile compact information about
those persons who are now contributing through their achievements
to the betterment and advancement of country life. In many cases
the decision as to the entry of certain names has been somewhat arbitrary,
inasmuch as the persons are only incidentally or secondarily connected
with rural subjects. It has been the aim to include those persons who
are regularly and prominently engaged in rural work as farmers, teachers,
investigators, business men, ministers, lecturers, farm agents, authors,
editors, rural organizers, administrators, if their efforts are of such a
nature as to make them public characters. The volume is designed to
be only a compilation of information, not of biographies or recognitions
of merit. Each entry is a curriculum vitce, without enlargement or appraisal.

If the book proves to be useful to those interested in rural affairs,
it is the expectation of the Compiler to reissue it from time to time in
extended form.

The Who's Who volumes of many kinds have become indispensable
works of reference, comprising authentic biographies and finding-lists
of living persons, providing sources of information to those who desire
to secure additions to their staffs, and affording a means of identifying
something of a person's relationship with his work. The English Who's
Who is now in its 70th year. Who's Who in America is in its tenth issue.
In Germany, a ^corresponding compilation is Wer isCs?; in Italy , Chi ?;
in France, Qui Etes-Vous?; in Sweden, Vem ar Del?; in Norway, Hvem
er Hvem?. There are directories for different professions and regions
in North America, becoming standard to the interests concerned. The
rural field, however, is unsupplied. For some years suggestions have
accumulated for the preparation of a Who's Who that will aid to organize
the rural work, give it proper recognition, and record the human resources
in the country-life movement. Such biographical compilation must con-
stitute an important element in the survey of rural affairs and resources
now so much in the public mind.



Record should be made at this place of the excellent book of 100 pages,
"A Biographical Directory of American Agricultural Scientists, "by Charles
S. Plumb, published at Knoxville, Tenn., in 1889. It is a pioneer. "The
publication of this book," the preface announces, "is the result of the
establishment of the agricultural experiment stations of the United States.
At the present time there are in the vicinity of 300 persons on the work-
ing staffs of the state agricultural experiment stations. Who these persons
are, and what they have done, is a subject of more than idle interest to
many." The thirty intervening years have brought great changes and
extensions in rural leadership; and in the meantime, the idea of the Who's
Who publications has grown in the public mind.

It has been the intention to include all officers in the colleges of agri-
culture, above the grade of Instructor, whose titles indicate that they
are engaged in agricultural or rural work, whether these colleges are sepa-
rate institutions or connected with universities. The grade of Instructor
has been omitted because the incumbencies are usually only temporary
and variable in character. It is not purposed to admit persons holding-
chairs of chemistry, zoology and botany as such, unless the title or history
or connection indicates that the applied branches of the work, as agri-
cultural chemistry, economic entomology, plant pathology, agricultural
botany, are emphasized. The foresters, meteorologists, landscape archi-
tects, veterinarians, connected with colleges of agriculture are entered, but
not those holding chairs in other institutions. The same is true of those in
home economics. Certain practitioners are admitted who have been
prominently identified with rural work. Care has been taken not to invade
the field of Cattell's "American Men of Science."

In the United States Department of Agriculture and the experiment
stations the entries are of those corresponding in rank, as closely as possible,
to grades above Instructor in the colleges of agriculture; and for the
Department the same theory of inclusion applies as for the Colleges.

All agricultural agents having regular charge of counties or larger
districts are within the purview of the book, but not assistants or merely
temporary agents. It has not seemed feasible, in the present stage of its
development, to make record of the home demonstration movement.

There has been no effort to include persons because they hold public
office, or are officers in societies.

It is not the expectation to enter persons because they are successful
farmers. Such an effort would have made a book of far different intention,
and also of unmanageable bulk. Such farmers should be known to the
public and should have recognition. For many years the Compiler has
felt that such lists or directories should be issued under public or semi-
public auspices in each state or province. Undoubtedly the list of farmers
should be much extended in subsequent issues of this book, comprising
those known for their public service. By the word "farmer" is meant
all those who till the soil for a livelihood, as general farmers, fruit-growers,
floriculturists, stock-raisers, poultrymen, beekeepers, and others.

The pieces of information requested of respondents are as follows:
name; occupation or profession; title, if in an institution or in public
work; place and date of birth; parentage; how reared, whether on
farm, in town or city; marriage; family; higher education, of academy
grade or above; advanced degrees; college fraternity or sorority; subse-
quent academic history; kind of farming or other specialty; connection
with honorary, learned or fine-art bodies or academies (not in regular
membership associations) ; appointment on state or national commissions
or other public boards or agencies; political, legal or military positions
or offices; delegate offices to foreign or important conventions or bodies;
decorations, medals, awards and prizes; elective officership in prominent
agricultural societies, cooperative associations, and others; notable
travel; authorship of books (not bulletins and reports); naturalization,
if born abroad; editorial positions.

We should have as good record of the rural range as of the urban
range. Rus and urbs together make up the public welfare.
