About the Book

This volume was produced in 1877, in an early phase of this popular late-nineteenth century genre of biographical collections. It contains profiles for a few hundred prominent men in Wisconsin, of up to two or three pages and occasionally with a full-page illustration. As is usual with this type of book, a profile normally contains, at a minimum, names of parents, date of arrival in Wisconsin, a few interesting details of his personal story, some professional background, details about Civil War service if any, and some basic data about marriage, wife and children.
