American National Biography

Klaus Issler, contributor of “Louis Marshall” and “Eliphalet Pearson”

AMERICAN NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY is the first new comprehensive biographical dictionary focused on American history to be published in seventy years, and it is the largest reference project ever undertaken by OUP-USA. In chronological scope, the ANB ranges from the time of the earliest recorded European explorations up to the very recent past. The approximately 17,500 historical figures who are profiled come from virtually all walks of life. The ANB is destined to be the standard reference work of its kind well into the twenty-first century.
