Iptreface



The aim of the publishei's of this volume and of the author of the history
has been to secure for the historical portion thereof full and accurate data respect-
ing the history of the county from the time of its early settlement, and to con-
dense it into a clear and interesting narrative. All topics and occiirrences have
been included that were essential to this object. Although the original purpose
was to limit the narrative to the close of the year 1906, it has been found ex-
pedient to touch on many matters relating to the year 1907, and also, in some
measure, to the current year 1908.

It is impossible to enumerate here all those to whom thanks are due for
assistance rendered and kindly interest taken in this work. We would, however,
make mention of Benjamin T. Prince, A. M., Ph. D., and W. B. Patton, M. D.,
as the respective authors of special and valuable articles herein printed. In the
preparation of the history reference has been made to, and in some cases ex-
tracts taken from standard, historical and other works on the different subjects
treated of.

The reviews of resolute and strenuous lives which make up the biographical
part of this volume, and whose authorship is for the most part independent of
that of the history, are admirably calculated to foster local ties, to inculcate
patriotism, and to emphasize the rewards of industiy dominated by intelligent
purpose. They constitute a most appropriate medium of perpetuating personal
annals and will be of incalculable value to the descendants of those commemorated.
These sketches replete with stirring incidents and iritense experiences, are flavored
with a strong human interest that will naturally prove to a large portion of the
readers of this book its most attractive feature.

In the aggregate of personal memoirs thus collated will be found a vivid
epitome of the growth of Clark County, which will fitly supplement the historical
statement, for its development is identified with that of the men and women
to whom it is attributable. The publishers have endeavored to pass over no
feature of the work slightingly, but to fittingly supplement the editor's labors
by exercising care over the minutest details of publication, and thus give to the
volume the three-fold value of a readable narrative, a useful work of reference,
and a tasteful ornament to the library. We believe the result has justified the
care thus exercised.



Special prominence lias been given to the portraits of representative citizens
which appear throughout the volume, and we believe that they will prove not
its least interesting feature. We have sought in this department to illustrate the
different spheres of industrial and professional achievement as conspicuously as
possible. To all those who have kindly interested themselves in the successful
preparation of this work, and who have voluntarily contributed most useful in-
formation and data, or rendered other assistance, we hereby tender our grateful
acknowledgments.

THE PUBLISHERS.

Chicago, 111., July, 1908.



mote



All the biographical sketches published in this volume were submitted to
their respective subjects or to the subscribers, from whom the facts were primarily
obtained, for their approval or correction before going to press; and a reasonable
time was allowed in each ease for the return of the typewritten copies. Most of
them were returned to us within the time allotted, or before the work was printed,
after being corrected or revised ; and these may therefore be regarded as reasonably
accurate.

A few, however, were not returned to us ; and, as we have no means of know-
ing whether they contain errors or not, we cannot vouch for their accuracy. In
justice to our readers, and to render this work more valuable for reference purposes,
we have indicated these uncorrected sketches by a small asterisk (*), placed
immediately after the name of the subject. They will all be found on the last
pages of the book.
