Biographical Dictionary of American Business Leaders, Volume 1

Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1983 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 2026 pages

The biographies concentrate on the subjects' business achievements and conclude with brief bibliographies. Appendixes group biographies by industry, company, birthplace, principal place of business activity, religion, ethnicity, and year of birth. One appendix names the fifty-three women treated. This is a needed and refreshing complement to the hundreds of business reference books whose columns of figures do not convey the human effort involved in American business. Library Journal
