INTRODUCTORY 



I 

p||^|||T|HE Cyclopedia of Ohio Biography issued under the title of 
"The Ohio Blue Book or Who's Who in the Buckeye State" 

tH fflli ' S k e li evg d to k ^ e most successful work of this character ever 
^ ^^ issued on any State in the Union. 

I The idea is to produce a valuable book of reference giving concise 

biographical information about living people of Ohio who are active in all 
the lines of reputable endeavor, and are today moving the wheels of business 
and industry, of education, science, literature, art, music and the professions 
people who today are "doing things" in the Buckeye State; and it is 
believed the list given marks the 1917 mile post in the biographical history of 
the State in a manner that will long stand as a record to be referred to with 
much interest. 

It is by no means contended that the list contains the sketches of all 
Ohioans who are worthy of a place in such a volume, but it may be safely 
said that the work contains from five to ten times as many biographies of 
worthy subjects as ever before appeared in one Ohio publication. With 
the alphabetical and index arrangement it is easy to find the names of the 
subjects who appear in the work, and to the public, therefore, the "Ohio 
Blue Book or Who's Who in the Buckeye State" is humbly submitted for 
what it is intended to be a concise story of thousands of Ohio People who 
in 1917 are leaving their footprints on the sands of time in the vocational life 
of this great commonwealth. 

Following the modern idea of the times in bookmaking, a quality of 
paper as thin as practical has been selected, making a volume easy to handle 
and only about one- third the thickness required had the ordinary thick paper 
been used, thus producing the work in much more commendable form. 

THE PUBLISHER 



EXPLANATORY NOTE Where dates are given for various positions or occupations of the biographical subiects. 

followed by a dash, such as "President First National Bank. 1910 ;" or "Professor of Law, Univ. of Cin., 1896 

i the dashf ) indicates that the subject of the sketch took said position at the date specified and is now holding the same. 

j or occupies said position at the present time. 

Under the head of Societies and Clubs. ("Socs. &- Clubs") it has been deemed advisable to group after this 
classification, without taking up further space to distinguish the same, all business and social clubs, fraternal societies and 

organizations, college fraternities, etc., etc., as it can easily be distinguished by the names of the societies as given, their 

meaning or classification.

ings, to be unconstitutional because it 
was special, and the charter of each city

ment. Special session of General Assem-
