Embracing Biographical Sketches Of Representative Michigan Men

This book provides full-page biographies of men prominent in Michigan's business, professional, political, educational, and cultural life in the late nineteenth century. Although the entries are not in alphabetical order, there is an alphabetical index on pp. xi-xiv. The entries are preceded by an extensive selection of historical background materials under such headings as "The Civil Commonwealth," "The Military Record," "Educational," "Material Interests," "Religious Organizations," and "Miscellaneous" (which discusses the political parties, liquor traffic, including prohibition laws, and also provides tables). The religion section includes information about church doctrine and polity for mainline denominations, and the educational section summarizes major institutional issues and conflicts at the University of Michigan.
