The life stories of American women—442 of them—who have in some way affected contemporary American life are explored in this lauded companion to Notable American Women: 1607–1950. The basics—the crucial dates, ancestry, parents, education, marital status, and children—provide invaluable material for both the researcher and the general reader. Beyond these essentials, a brief essay focuses on each woman’s life and personality, and evaluates her career from a historical framework. Sixteen new pages of photographs specially selected for the paperback edition have been included.
