PREFACE 

The Book of Chicagoans was first published in 1905. A second 
edition was issued in 1911. A third edition has been called for, and the 
present volume is presented as the best possible response to that 
demand. 

This edition contains many names not listed in the earlier issues- 
names hitherto unavoidably overlooked, as well as a large number of 
names which have come into prominence since the previous edition was 
printed. The work of revision has been painstaking and thorough. Not 
only have many new names been added, but each of the original sketches 
has been rewritten in order that the best possible arrangement of the 
data for easy reference purposes might be secured ; and value has been 
added by the inclusion of the names of many leading women. The names 
of women were not included in the previous volumes. 

A casual examination of these pages will disclose not only the pres- 
ence of many new names, but also the absence of a considerable number 
of sketches which appeared in the earlier issues. The omissions are 
accounted for by reason of deaths (The Book of Chicagoans being con- 
fined to the living only), removals from the city, impossibility to find 
present addresses, and a few because they are no longer regarded of 
sufficient importance. 

It is known that 841 persons whose names appeared in the 
previous edition have died and that 408 have removed from the city; 
consequently their sketches have been dropped, and 729 have been 
omitted for other reasons. The names, however, have been included in 
the present edition and reference has been made to the volume in which 
the sketches may be found. 

This feature will be of particular value to those who may wish to 
secure reliable biographical information about many men who were 
prominent in the business or social life of Chicago in the opening years 



is here given in undiluted form and every item is presented in a plain, 
unvarnished, concise, condensed manner, which may be at once under- 
stood. 

In number and representative selection of subjects, accuracy of 
detail and authoritative usefulness as a work of reference, it is confi- 
dently claimed that The Book of Chicagoans is the most complete 
compilation of Chicago biography ever printed. Not only is this true, 
but by far the larger part of the information it contains is not pro- 
curable, in print, from any other source. 

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

Chicago, October 1, 1917.
