Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography, Vol. 3

The National Cyclopædia of American Biography has undertaken in provide a biographical record of the United States worthy to rank with the great National Biographies of Europe. It embraces the biographieal sketches of all persons prominently connected with the history of the nation. Not only do ruler-, statesmen, soldiers, persons noteworthy in the church, at the liar, in literature, art, science, and the professions iind place, !ml also those who li:ie contributed to the industrial and commercial progress and growth of the country. The aim of the work is to exemplify and perpetuate, in the broadest sense. Amerieaii ci ilial imi through its chief personalities.

Such a work of historical biography has never before In attempted. Previous work-; have either excluded the living, or limited them to a well-known few in the centres of activity. But this Cyclopaedia is uni iie. It has been prepared upon new lines which insure its being the biographical authority of the eeiitnrv. It is intended to make this Cyclopedia National, representing the entire liepublie, and rellecting the spirit, genius and life of each section.

It is acknowledged that the great forces which to-day contribute most largely to the growth of the country are the men who hae de eloped jt.s industrial and commercial resources, and it is believed that, while literary workers should be accorded ample representation, tho-e who contribute so much to the material and physieal welfare of the country deserve ami command fuller recognition than has before been accorded them in works of this character. Achievements in engineering, electricity, or architecture; improvements in locomotives, looms or ploughs, contribute as much to the advancement of civilization as an epic poem or an Oxford traei; and the factors in these achievements are to be sought out, and given to the world through the pages of this Cyclopedia.

In the United States there is neither a Nobility, nor an Aristocracy, noris there a Landed Gentry, as these classes are understood in Europe. But there are, in the United States, numerous Families which have ancient lineage and records, and other families, founded in the soil, so to speak, destined to become the ancestry of the future. There is every reason why the genealogy and history of these families should be recorded and perpetuated. No native of any other land has reason to be prouder of his country than an American whose family name represents either direct descent from the early colonists or Revolutionary ancestors, or marked prosperity and success through intelligent, arduous, and faithful labor for the benefit of his country and the advancement of his race. One of the objects of the National Cyclopaedia is to fulfill for the United States this purpose, and supply an invaluable and useful means for establishing identity, relationship, birth, death, official position, and other important data which are necessary to the making up of such family history.
