INTRODUCTION 



ROMINENT MEN of Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Vicinity is 
the outcome of expensive preparation, requiring nearly two 
years of painstaking labor to complete, and is sent forth with 
confidence that it will be valued by the intelligent community 
it represents in proportion to its manifest merits. 

Over twelve hundred portraits make this by far the most 
comprehensi\'e collection ever published in the Lackawanna and 
Wyoming V^alleys. 
So remarkable an array of portraits of the prominent and noteworthy 
men, present and past, was at first considered impossible by discerning 
citizens whose advice was sought, and neither they nor anyone who has 
not shared the labors involved in the making of this book can properly 
realize the difficulties which have been overcome. 

The sketches are arranged in numerical order, commencing at the 
ending of the portraits, and in every instance confined to facts. Often it 
would be easier to write a page of ordinary biography than to indicate a 
man's career in a few lines, but the charm of such a collection of portraits, 
unmarred by any undiscriminating biographies, always tiresome and some- 
times incorrect, makes this book a pleasant review instead of a mental task. 
Included in the collection are many portraits of those who have 
passed away, which enhances its value, and the possessors of this memento 
will have "a kind of excellent dumb discourse" more eloquent than 
words, to entertain and instruct their families and friends and hand down 
to posterity an heirloom which must increase in value as the passing yeais 
recede into fainter and fainter memories. 

The arduous toil of making a worthy collection of Portraits of Promi- 
nent Men of Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties is ended, and the completed 
result is ready to be placed in the hands of its subscribers. We are sure 
that it will be cordially welcomed and that the better it is known the better 
it will be appreciated.
