DUC r 'OKY 




T was the intention of the publisher of 
Men of Illinois" to produce a practical 
book for the use of the business men of 
the state, but more particularly, perhaps, 
for the convenience of the press of the whole country. 
The work does not pretend to be biographical in 
the broad sense of that word. The desire has been 
to produce portraits which, in point of excellence, 
would leave little to be desired and to give just 
enough of the life of each of the "Men of Illinois " 
to make the matter of easy and quick reference for 
newspapermen and for others when such information 
was sought. 

From the inception of the idea of preparing this 
book earnest support has been given the work by 
the newspapermen of Chicago and of other cities, 
who realized the value that the book's completion 
would be to them. It is possible that another vol- 
ume may be necessary to bring the work to its full 
fruition. The publisher trusts that the volume 
which is given herewith to the public will commend 
itself and bear testimony at the same time that if a 
further extension of the work be considered advis- 
able the people may be fairly well assured that it 
will have qualities both of beauty and of utility.

T is believed by the publisher of ** Men of 
Illinois" that even the casual observer of 
this book will admit that acknowledg- 
ments are due to the men and the firms 
who have made it so attractive to the eye. 

It is due to the Miehle Printing Press Company 
to say that it is thought it would have been impos- 
sible to have made the reproduction of the photo- 
graphs so well-nigh perfect had not the printing of 
the plates been done upon the presses of this com- 
pany. There is, perhaps, no mechanical contrivance 
for the purpose of printing in existence which 
executes such faultless work as the Miehle Press. 
Its output is absolutely uniform in point of ex- 
cellence. 

If the reader of this book will but take the 
pains to look carefully at the copperplate engrav- 
ings therein he must admit that he has rarely, if 
ever, seen work coming from a printing press which 
can so unreservedly and truthfully be called art. 
The Miehle Printing Press executes the same 
artistic work of the colortype form that it does in 
copperplate. 





No matter how excellent a press may be, all 
that it can do with a poor plate is to make a better 
impression and a better general effect than would be 
possible with a poor printing press* An acknowl- 
edgment is due to the Barnes-Crosby Company 
that they made it possible to send to the press nothing 
but the finest copperplates that human ingenuity 
and the genius of art could produce. The copper- 
plates of the Barnes-Crosby Company are without 
flaw and without fault* 

It is as impossible to make a good impression 
without a good press as it is impossible to make a 
good copperplate likeness of a person unless the 
original photograph were all that it should be. A 
large part, in fact the great majority, of the engrav- 
ings used to illustrate "Men of Illinois" were made 
from photographs taken by Radnor Coover. whose 
studio is in the Schiller building. Randolph street. 
Chicago. Mr. Coover is without question in the 
very front of his profession. For his assistance in 
making this book pictorially excellent the publisher 
wishes to thank Mr. Coover heartily, and takes this 
as the best means of so doing. 

The excellent appearance of the letterpress 
of "Men of Illinois n is due to the work of the 
Blakely Printing Company. The advance sheets 
of the work have been pronounced typographically 
perfect by men competent to judge. It was the aim 
of the publisher to have nothing but the best work 
enter into his book. The selection of the Blakely 
Printing Company was the natural outcome of this 
desire for perfection.

" Men of Illinois n was bound by A. J. Cox & 
Co., Chicago, The work speaks for itself, but the 
publisher wishes to directly thank A. J. Cox & Co. 
for their thoroughly strong and beautiful work* 

In the preparation of a book like "Men of 
Illinois " the publisher could be charged rightly with 
something worse than inconsistency if he failed to 
include in his work a word about the Illinois Cen- 
tral Railroad, whose origin, growth and success were 
due largely to the same qualities which made great 
the state. 

The advance in material prosperity of the state 
of Illinois and the growth of the railroad system 
which bears its name were coincident. Few people, 
perhaps, at this day appreciate to how large an 
extent Illinois is indebted to this railroad for its 
development. Mr. W. K. Ackerman, in a history 
of the Illinois Central Railroad, in speaking of the 
license which was given the company by the state 
legislature to operate a railroad within the limits of 
Illinois, says: "The charter was a special one and in 
its bearing upon the future welfare and prosperity 
of the state was probably the most important ever 
granted." 

There are people living today who can remem- 
ber the futile attempts that were made by the state 
itself and by a private corporation to construct a 
north- an d-south railroad in Illinois. When finally 
the founders of the present Illinois Central received 
their charter and put their work through the people 
gave so much credit for the work that statesmen 
actually quarreled over the matter of credit for 







having been the first to suggest the undertaking. 
An acrimonious correspondence passed between 
Stephen A. Douglas and Sidney Breese because 
each claimed to have been the first to suggest the 
railroad subject. Perhaps the credit really belongs, 
however, to Lieutenant-Governor Alexander M. 
Jenkins, who spoke of Illinois' railroad possibilities in 
the state senate as early as J832. 

The State of Illinois made a failure in trying to 
construct a railroad that was to connect ultimately 
the lakes with the gulf. The Great Western Rail- 
road Company, so called, became bankrupt in trying 
to succeed where the state failed. In the year J85J 
a little body of strong business men, headed by 
Jonathan Sturges, met, organized a corporation and 
from that hour the Illinois Central Railroad has 
existed. 

It is but due to say that the officials of the 
Illinois Central Railroad have been interested in the 
progress of the publishing of ** Men of Illinois," on 
account of the nature of the work and its intimate 
connection with the history of the state of which 
the story of the railroad forms so great a part. The 
publisher's acknowledgments are given sincerely to 
the officials of the Illinois Central Railroad for their 
courtesies on all occasions and for the information 
which they so readily supplied.
