American National Biography offers portraits of more than 19,000 men and women — from all eras and walks of life — whose lives have shaped American history and culture. From astronauts to missionaries, chemists to musicians, and cowboys to Vikings, the portraits combine to reflect the rich diversity of American life, from pre-colonial times onward. More than a decade in preparation, the American National Biography is the first biographical resource of this scope to be published in more than sixty years.
The Main Library has a full 24-volume set of the printed version of American National Biography which can be found in DiscoverEd. Two supplements are also on order.
