PREFACE 



When the first edition of Who's Who in America appeared, in 1899, it pre- 
sented itself as a new and untried experiment in the field of American bookmaking. 
It was the first book ever issued which claimed to be, in any comprehensive de- 
gree, a general biographical dictionary of notable American contemporaries. The 
compilation of such a book from the results of original research was obviously a 
task full of difficulties, and these were mentioned, with some fullness of detail, in 
the preface to the original volume. 

Those interested in the production of the book looked forward, with strong 
confidence, to a favorable reception for it. But the event outran the expectation. 
The highest hopes that had been entertained scarcely approached the actual cor- 
diality and enthusiasm with which the book was received by the critics and the 
public. The amount of attention given to the work by literary critics showed that 
Who's Who in America was regarded as one of the most important publications 
of the year 1899. Indeed, one of the foremost American journalists characterized 
it as being entitled to first place in the literary output of that year. It was every- 
where hailed as a valuable addition to the list of indispensable reference books. 
The approving critics included not only those connected with the great news- 
papers, but also those of the leading literary, scientific, and technical magazines 
and reviews of America and Europe. 

Gratifying as was this wide approval by critics and literary experts, a still more 
valuable form of endorsement has appeared in the voluntary testimonials to the 
usefulness of the baok which have come -in, connection with the actual daily use of 
the old and the preparation ol the new volume. These testimonials now reach into 
% the thousands, and show.a.highidegree-iof appreciation, which has been a powerful 
inspiration toward painstaking care in .the work of the present volume. 

The Preface to the.1899-.190q, edition, aoniewhat timidly intimated that periodical 
revisions of the book would bt-tnade, ancfc suggestions along that line were invited. 
A few months after the book had been issued it became apparent that a new edi- 
tion was demanded, and as time went on it became more and more certain that the 
revision must take the form of an entirely new book, so numerous were the addi- 
tions and so extensive the changes required. 

The results of the revision and enlargement of Who's Who in America are 
now placed before the reader in the present book. As to the enlargement, the 
increase in the number of biographical pages from 827 (including Addenda) in 
the first to 1,280 (including Addenda) in the present edition, and of names from 
8,602 in 1899 to 11,551 in 1901, bears sufficient testimony. Of the 8,602 names 
in the old edition, 752 have been omitted from the present one. Of these 498 are 
known to have died, and their names are recorded in the Necrology of the pres- 
ent volume. Among the other 255 who have been dropped are some who were 
included in the first edition solely because they then belonged to some one of the 
arbitrary classifications embraced in the book. Being no longer in those classifi- 
cations, they have been omitted. There are also a few omissions of people whose 

iii 



iv PREFACE 

present whereabouts careful inquiry has failed to disclose. Some of these may 
also be dead. 

With reference to the extent to which revision has been carried out, it may be 
stated that of the 7,850 biographies appearing in both editions not more than 10 
per cent are entirely unchanged. Each of these 7,850 biographies has been sent to 
its subject with a request for revisions and additions. Many of the life-sketches 
have been entirely rewritten; mistakes have been rectified wherever discovered, 
and new matter has been added. A feature of the volume is the insertion of the 
parentage in every sketch for which the necessary information was obtainable. 
The parentage was not given in the first edition. In the case of authors a strong 
effort has been made to secure complete lists of all of their published books. To 
this end special blanks were sent to all authors, asking them for lists of their 
books with dates of original publication and names and addresses of present 
publishers. The response to the first part of the request was so general that 
(although there are still some omissions) the present edition of Who's Who 
in America is believed to contain the most complete list of living American 
authors and their works which is now extant. The addition of dates to the 
titles of the books is a new feature which has been added wherever the in- 
formation was furnished. The adding to the date of a key-symbol indicating the 
name (and address where known) of the firm publishing the latest edition of the 
book is a unique innovation which it is believed will be of much value to authors, 
librarians, publishers and all interested in books. The only thing to regret in 
connection with this feature is the failure of numerous authors to furnish the 
information required to make this apply to eveiy book listed. 

With regard to the addition of new namei, the endeavor h'^s been to adhere to 
the high standard which governed the selection of <sfc6&e'cfls the first edition. The 
idea of the plan pursued has been to make ihe irclusivetiess of the work more 
perfect, but at the same time to retain its features of exclusiveness. Some lines 
of distinction are much more extensively represented c lffari before: this being no- 
tably the case with reference to artists and authors. 

The enlargement of the book is not the result of padding, but of extended 
scope. In fact, the necessity for careful condensation has been more apparent in 
the new than in the old book, and a much more extensive use of abbreviations has 
been made. These abbreviations are, however, of a simple and conventional char- 
acter, and will in almost every case be at once understood, without need of ref- 
erence to the list of abbreviations, which can be consulted readily if any difficulty 
of interpretation shall be found. 

The invitation extended in the first edition for suggestions of improvement, 
new names, notice of omissions or of errors, etc., has called forth much corre- 
spondence which has been incalculably helpful in the work of the present volume. 
It is, of course, true that not all of the good suggestions could be adopted. Some 
of them, excellent in themselves, would have required a large increase of space. 
As it is, the enlargement has exceeded expectations in regard to the space required 
by the additions and improvements incorporated in this edition. 

One of the suggestions made was that a classified index be appended in' which 



PREFACE v 

the names should be listed according to occupation or line of distinction. The 
value of this suggestion was so obvious that considerable test work was done with 
a view to its adoption. To do the work thoroughly it was found, however, that 
nearly every name would have to be listed from two to four times, requiring 
approximately about 35,000 entries, or about 100 pages. It was impossible to spare 
so much space, and the work was reluctantly abandoned. 

The work of selecting new names and procuring biographical material has been 
prosecuted with the utmost zeal and care ; but, while the results have been very 
gratifying, it is still true that there are names which should be included that are 
absent. In a country of over seventy-six millions of people even approximate 
success in the judicious selection of a certain class of distinguished names is a 
difficult task; and after they are selected appropriate data in regard to them are 
not always procurable. Therefore, even with the utmost effort, there will always 
be an unrecorded remnant. 

The labor connected with preparing a work of this kind is arduous, and the 
gathering of so much information and reducing it to condensed statement involve 
efforts that are strenuous and serious. The task is, however, not unrelieved by 
amusing incidents and grotesque side-views of various idiosyncrasies, and of hu- 
morous phases of character and thought. Many of these revealed themselves in 
revisions of sketches which appeared in the first edition. To one man, recorded 
in that edition as "married," without further particulars, a proof was sent for re- 
vision, with a note: "Please give the maiden-name of your wife." With the 
return of the corrected proof came the following: "I am sorry I can not comply 
with your request to give you my "wifeV rnVMen name, as she is now traveling in 
Europe. v l 

An amusing comment on-^.no'her sketch returned without revision was: "This 
is correct, and is, it seems' to me just what such a note should be: careful, accu- 
rate, no bouquets, no bricks." Not qiske so complimentary was the following from 
a leading western poet ai'd 'drJtic: "1 take pleasure in revising the sketch of myself 
in the game of Literary Tag, or Who's It." 

In the Information Blank sent to those requested to furnish biographical data 
the line which was oftenest overlooked was that of "date of birth." Not only did 
many ladies ignore it, but some men also. One lady wrote in : "I am not young 
enough to be careless, nor old enough to be reckless." Several wrote in the line 
such comments as "not necessary," or "leave out." One lady, to whom the 
printed sketch from the first edition was sent for revision, wrote underneath it : 
"Please substitute the enclosed typewritten sketch, which is much better." Exam- 
ination revealed the fact that the typewritten matter was identical with the printed 
slip, except that the date of birth was omitted. 

The death of 498 out of a total list of names numbering 8,602, will perhaps 
seem, at first glance, to be a rather alarming bill of mortality, being about 29.4 
to the 1,000 per annum. But when it is considered that the book is made up of 
men and women of achievement, and that a large number are people who have 
led lives of great activity and are now old, the number is after all not surprising. 
One of the noteworthy facts which came to light in compiling the Necrology is 



vi PREFACE. 

the total elimination of the name of Daly from the present volume, although there 
were four of the name in the first edition : Augustin Daly, the dramatist and 
manager; Charles Patrick Daly, jurist and geographer; Marcus Daly, miner 
and capitalist, and William D. Daly, congressman and lawyer. 

In the list now presented the birth-dates extend back to 1804 (including the 
senior Rear Admiral Selfridge), and cover probably every year down to 1883, 
when Mary Antin, the "child author," was born. Probably the next most youth- 
ful (unless others have used reticence as to age in order to conceal youth) is 
Margaret Horton Potter, the authoress, born in 1881. 

The experiences connected with those who desired to be left out or who strug- 
gled to get in were similar to those mentioned in the Preface to the first edition, 
but the latter class was, as a general thing, the more persistent. One man, after 
revising his sketch in ink with much care and particularity, made faint pencil-lines 
diagonally across it and then wrote underneath : "Please leave me out." The 
poetess, who two years ago, wrote, "Wait until I am dead before you embalm me," 
renewed her objections in practically the same words when asked for a revision. 
Several offered as substitutes for the submitted copy long eulogistic sketches. One 
demanded that a typewritten sketch of twenty-two closely written foolscap pages 
be substituted for the printed record of as many lines which had been submitted 
to him. Several actors asked to have extracts from especially favorable press 
notices appended to their sketches. Two or three of the same profession, as well 
as others in various vocations, thought their notices would look better with a por- 
trait, and sent their photographs for reproduction. One man, who has had a some- 
what meteoric newspaper career, made <?apioyS additions and 'further said: "This 
will do, if you can't do better but I would 'like* about L <& stsSkiul more space. This 
is a good thing." - ", i =<?"? \;*: 

Many and strenuous were the efforts c fes proftur? 'admission by persons whose 
applications had to be declined. A few- whtf suggested:' themselves were included, 
being persons whose position or achievements' made; "them .'-eligible. There were, 
as in the first edition, many who tried to buy their way in ; but, as before, the book 
has been kept entirely free from any buying or selling of space, except in the 
plainly designated advertising pages, which have themselves been carefully guarded 
from objectionable features. Who's Who in America has gained such a well- 
established reputation that the sincerity of its statements in this regard is seldom 
doubted. It is now very rarely the case that biographical information comes with 
the appended note : "The above information is given with the understanding, as 
stated by you, that it places me under no pecuniary obligation whatever," or words 
of similar import. Such caution is entirely unnecessary. The policy of Who's 
Who in America in this respect has been permanently adopted, and, whatever may 
be the errors of inclusion or omission, they are solely mistakes of judgment, 
entirely unbiased and unprejudiced. The publishers are, of course, very glad to 
sell the book to all who care to buy it, but mention in it is in no way controlled 
by the question of subscription. 

The most valuable aid in the matter of selecting names to be represented has 
been their suggestion by persons already in the book. Many men of eminent ability 



PREFACE vii 

have given cheerful and hearty cooperation in this respect. The names of these are 
quite too numerous to list, although Dr. W J McGee, of the Bureau of American 
Ethnology, for renewed favors ; Mr. Joseph B. Gilder, of The Critic ; Mr. Frank- 
lin B. Wiley, of The Ladies' Home Journal; Mr. Edward Stanwood, of The 
Youths' Companion, are among the many whose kindly service in this respect has 
been especially cordial and valuable. There are hundreds of otbers publishers, 
journalists, scientists, educators, librarians, litterateurs, etc. who have helped. 

In a few instances attention has been called by correspondents to errors of 
judgment made in the selection of names for the first edition. It had been ex- 
pected that criticism would be directed principally toward errors in the admission 
of names. As a matter of fact, however, the errors of inclusion were either very 
few or excited little attention. Scarcely a score of names in the first edition have 
been challenged as unworthy. The omission of individual names has been the 
subject of most of the criticisms made by those who have written. Yet even here 
the majority have been kind enough to express their gratification at the complete- 
ness and carefulness with which the task of selection has been carried out, at the 
same time that they have noted some specific omission. 

It is hoped that the enlarged scope of the present volume will make the use- 
fulness of the book for biographical reference more complete than ever. In order 
that those not familiar with Who's Who in America by the use of the first edi- 
tion may know the extent of the field it aims to cover, it may be stated in a general 
way that the present edition contains concise biographical sketches of n.55 1 living 
men and women. They are either Americans themselves or are so closely identi- 
fied with American affairs or interests as to be subjects of American inquiry or 
discussion. Thus, foreign ambassadors and ministers accredited to this country are 
included. So are some foreign actors, lecturers and others who, by frequent visits, 
or in some other way, have become subjects of inquiry or interest in this 
country. Endeavor has been made to include all Americans of more than local 
note in all lines of useful effort. Most of these have been selected as a matter of 
judgment for which no inflexible rule can be established. Many others, however, 
have been arbitrarily included, the ex-officio admissions aiming to embrace all 
members of the Fifty-seventh Congress ; all governors of the States and Terri- 
tories now in office; all United States judges? all judges of State and Territorial 
courts of highest appellate jurisdiction; also persons of other important official 
classifications; all presidential and vice-presidential candidates of 1900; members 
of the national committees of the two principal political parties and heads of the 
others ; members of the National Academy of Sciences ; members of the National 
Academy of Design ; educational heads of all the larger universities and colleges ; 
as well as some other arbitrary classifications. 

It is believed that the book, with the condensed form of statement it has 
adopted, contains more biographical information than was ever before compressed 
into so small a space ; and more than half of this is information which can not be 
found elsewhere in print. The former edition was characterized by one of 
our distinguished scientists as a "compendium of intellectual life in America," and 
by a famous diplomat and litterateur as '"indispensable to any one who would 



viii PREFACE 

keep pace with the age." In the production of the present volume there has been 
a constant endeavor to maintain the standard of work which has evoked these and 
hundreds of similar commendations. It mirrors the national life in all its various 
phases; the developments of science and industry; the marshaling of financial 
forces on a scale never before attempted; the building up of intelligence by the 
increasing magnificence and widening scope of educational facilities; the growing 
power of the Nation in military, naval and commercial strength ; the development 
of literature and art; the ministry of the Gospel at home and abroad through 
American agencies ; the progress and evolution of new social and political 
theories and potentialities. All these and other phases of American activity and 
progress are pictured through the life sketches of the men and women who best 
represent them. Here are epitomized the stories of opportunities grandly improved 
by thousands of men and women who have helped to shape the conditions of 
To-Day in American thought and action, and who are bearing an important share 
in fashioning the still more grand To-Morrow of our land. The book is full of 
sociological suggestion, and of much else that is worthy of more than casual 
reference. Even the flavor of romantic adventure is not wanting, for there are 
stories of explorers, of warriors and of pioneers, and of men, like Lamar Fon- 
taine, for instance, whose true adventures surpass those of many of the most fanci- 
ful heroes of imaginative literature. 

The volume for 1901-1902 is in all essentials a new book: every line reset, about 
90 per cent of the old matter revised, and additions made which make the volume 
about 52 per cent larger than before. 

The policy of appending to practically every sketch the present address of its 
subject is the one which has involved the greatest expenditure of time and labor 
and a vast amount of correspondence. It is scarcely possible that any reader 
can conceive how difficult this work has really been with reference to quite a 
large percentage of the total number. Persons sought for in the Rocky Mountain 
region have been finally located in Paris. People whose last suggested address 
was in Maine have been found in California, and in many cases a dozen or more 
letters have been necessary to procure the desired information. But the results 
are fully worth the trouble. One distinguished man testified that through its 
agency he had been enabled to open correspondence with a score of college friends 
whose addresses he had sought in vain for years. This feature of a handy directory 
-combined with a biographical dictionary has met with the widest approval and 
appreciation. The proved usefulness of the book has extended to practically all 
classes of men and institutions. Its use by newspapers is, of course, very great, 
and that it is indispensable in libraries is also equally obvious. It has taken, also, 
a very prominent place in educational institutions, and particularly in universities 
and colleges, where its accessory value in connection with practically every branch 
of higher education has gained the widest recognition. 

With a view to future revisions, as time or necessity shall make them advisable, 
suggestions for further improvement, changes in biographical data, notices of 
deaths and announcements of changes of address as they occur, are again invited.

EDUCATIONAL STATISTICS 



Among the preliminary discussions in the original edition of Who's Who in 
America was an article which was inserted with a view to analyzing as accurately 
as possible the educational advantages enjoyed by the people biographically men- 
tioned in the volume. 

The statistics there presented, with the deductions made from them, attracted 
wide and interested attention, and very many requests have been made for a 
similar presentation of educational statistics in the present edition. In addition 
to these requests, the extended current discussion, as to the value of the higher 
education as a factor in success, has seemed to make the compilation of such 
statistics in this edition timely, as well as useful. Some writers have maintained 
that the higher education is a detriment rather than an aid to success, while others 
have stoutly defended the advantages of a college education. Of course the 
strength of the argument, either way, depends very largely upon the individual 
definition of the word "success." 

Of the n,S5 people whose brief biographies appear in the present edition, 
9760 have furnished educational data, more or less complete, concerning their 
general or special education. These are people who have, in some line of effort, 
become sufficiently well known away from home to make the publication of 
biographical facts about them seem desirable. Many of them are successful people, 
from any definition, although not all are successful in the same way. 

Of course, the value of these statistics depends primarily upon the accuracy of 
the information upon which they are based; and, secondly, upon the manner in 
which that information is statistically used. 

In preparing the following figures the data furnished in regard to education 
of each subject have been examined. It has been necessary to eliminate from 
consideration all post-graduate work, in view of the fact that so large a proportion 
of post-graduate degrees are honorary that their value for statistical purposes is not 
ascertainable with even approximate accuracy. Therefore, the highest point in 
education to which these statistics reach is the baccalaureate degree, and for the 
purpose of this inquiry the degree of each collegiate institution must be taken as 
representing a general average of education. In the items relating to general 
education there have been no duplications, so that where the subject has attended 
one or more colleges besides academies, public schools, etc., there has been only 
one entry, and the higher includes the lower. Following are the figures : 

4521 are graduates of universities and colleges conferring bacca- 
laureate degrees in letters, science, or philosophy. 
965 others attended like institutions, but were not graduated. 
889 closed their scholastic career in academies, seminaries, and 

other institutions of a secondary grade. 
117 finished in normal schools. 
239 have a high school education only. 
808 have merely common or public school education. 
282 were privately educated. 
31 are self-taught. 
366 were educated in foreign institutions. 
1791 furnish no educational data. 
717 were graduated in medicine.

xiv EDUCATIONAL STATISTICS 

327 were graduated from technical schools as engineers, archi- 
tects, chemists, agriculturists, etc. 

494 are theological graduates. 

521 were graduated from law schools. 

121 were graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy. 

14 naval officers were not graduated as such. 

168 were graduated from the U. S. Military Academy. 

36 military officers were not graduated as such. 

In the foregoing there are about a thousand duplications, which represent those 
who have furnished facts concerning their technical or professional as well as 
their general education. Many, however, particularly physicians and lawyers, have 
given the details of their professional training, but have omitted all other reference 
to their general education. The 1791 who furnish no educational data include a 
certain number of persons about whom there are only a few identifying words, 
because further information could not be obtained. Others have simply omitted to 
furnish details of their education. Yet the absence of such details by no means 
implies lack of education, because many of them are engaged in pursuits which 
make sound scholastic training imperative. It is probable that if these had all 
supplied the information desired the relative numbers in each classification would 
have been practically the same. 

For the purpose of the present comparison these and the 366 educated in 
foreign institutions may be eliminated and the inquiry may be confined to the first 
eight items, with the addition of the naval and military graduates, or to 8141 out 
of the total of 11,551 names in the book. Of these, 5486 are collegians, or, if the 
naval and military academies are accorded collegiate rank, the number is 5775. 
Only 313 (282 privately educated and 31 self-taught) did not attend school, and of 
the remaining 7828 only 808 stopped with the instruction received in the common 
schools. It should be remembered, however, that by far the larger number of those 
who went higher received their early training in the public schools. The most 
noteworthy fact is that of the 8141 who furnished full data in regard to their 
general education 5775 are collegians, and 4521 (or 4810 if West Point and 
Annapolis graduations are considered equivalent) have been graduated from 
colleges. 

In regard to professional training, lack of time has prevented careful compari- 
son, but it may safely be said that less than one-half of the lawyers have recorded 
themselves as having attended law schools and less than one-half of the clergymen 
are graduates of theological schools. Most of the members of both professions 
have pursued their professional studies in other ways. The artists, sculptors, 
musicians, and actors have for the most part gained their preparatory studies 
under private direction. 

Considering the character of the people concerning whom the foregoing figures 
and deductions have been compiled, the latter may be of some value for the pur- 
pose of illumining the current discussion of education as a factor in success. 
Another fact that may be worth emphasis as indicating the value of the deductions 
here made, is that a comparison between the figures given here and those pre- 
sented in the first edition, on precisely the same basis, show close similarity in 
results, the ratios being very nearly the same between the different items, not- 
withstanding the increased number of names in the present volume.

xvi BIRTH AND RESIDENCE STATISTICS 

In the foregoing table 65 foreign countries, as well as the 45 States, 6 Terri- 
tories, and the District of Columbia, are represented. Puerto Rico and the Phil- 
ippine Islands are classed as "foreign," and Hawaii as domestic, for the purposes 
of this review. The officers of the army and navy who are in service beyond 
seas are not included in the list of foreign residents, but are credited to the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, because their permanent addresses are in care of the War and 
Navy Departments, respectively. 

The totals show, as to birth-place, 9,800 natives, 1,281 foreign-born, 9 born at 
sea, 461 not reporting. Eliminating the last two items for the purpose of com- 
putation, 88.44 P er cent are native and n.56 per cent foreign-born. All of the 
American States and Territories contribute to the birth column except Alaska, 
Arizona, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma and Wyoming. 

As to present residence only 370 live permanently abroad, 11,137 live in the 
United States and 44 do not report. Of those abroad 108 are in England, 76 in 
France, 28 in Italy, 23 in Canada, 19 in Germany, 11 each in Japan and the Phil- 
ippines, and less than 10 each in any other country. Among domestic residents 
the largest figures are represented by New York, Massachusetts, District of Co- 
lumbia, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, California, Connecticut, Mis- 
souri, and Maryland, in the order named. 

In the birth column the largest figures, in order, are those of New York, 
Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Maine, Virginia, Indiana, Vermont, New 
Jersey, Kentucky, New Hampshire and Maryland. New England, which fur- 
nishes 2,435 to the birth column, has only 1,631 in the residence column. The 
District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Rhode 
Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin are the only States east of the Mississippi in 
which the residents exceed the natives in this table. Every State and Territory 
west of the Mississippi (including Louisiana) is more largely represented in the 
second than in the first column. 

The large number in the second column for the District of Columbia is due 
to the location there of government officials and employes. Senators and repre- 
sentatives in Congress are, however, accredited to their home States. 

Taken as a whole, the table shows the western trend of population and the 
extensive concentration of many important activities in the larger cities. If the 
statistics could be compiled with greater detail, the latter named fact would appear 
even more strongly. Other deductions (and the table suggests many) must be 
left for the individual reader, but it- is believed that this table will be found in- 
teresting and valuable as indicating the extent of the dispersion or concentration 
of the higher activities and achievements of the notable people of the United 
States.
