Encyclopedia of American Biography
I found a genealogy gem today at a garage sale for $1.00:
Encyclopedia of American Biography (New Series)
Under the Editorial Direction of Winfield Scott Downs, LITT. D.
In Association with a Notable Advisory Board
A Publication of The American Historical Society, Inc.
New York 1938
This publication has over 1,000 individual surnames indexed. Each biography is quite lengthy and contains a picture. The book is in great shape.
I don't have any intentions of selling the book but I will start a project of creating a digital index. I will make the index available when it's completed.
I've typed in a sample biography from the book. See the post entititled "Hon. Alexander Sweek - Biography from Encyclopedia of American Biography "
If anyone would like be to do a lookup in this book reply to this post.
