Authors: The Area Volunteer Committees of the Osborne County Hall of Fame
In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century’s professional and amateur historians devoted much time to the collection and publication of biographical information about famous, or at least locally significant individuals. This practice fell out of favor with the profession, but those old collections are still used in historical research and perhaps are now valued more than ever before. In this tradition this book offers the interested reader or serious researcher 125 biographical sketches, most of which were originally published as a series in three county newspapers, that reflect a great deal on the first 125 years of Osborne County history. 119 photographs. Index.
