1917. Part Two of Two. Fully illustrated. Not just another biographical dictionary, this work offers a distinctive, practical manual for daily use in the upbuilding of education, character and citizenship. Masters of Achievement is divided into two mutually supplemental sections. The first part covers one hundred of the greatest masters, arranged in their respective fields of action. The second part contains several thousand other persons whose achievements of historical or local importance entitle them to inclusion in a useful work of biographical reference. In actual use it will be found to furnish much pertinent and valuable information not available in the encyclopedias, biographical manuals, or elsewhere, except in the most extensive libraries. Attention is called to completeness of this list and to the up-to-date character of the biographies of the winners of Nobel prizes in all lands. These distinguished men and women are the present-day leaders in the forward march of civilization. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
