THE purpose of Herringshaw's City Blue Book of Biography is to present in one volume, and in condensed form, a standard work of Biographical Reference, giving appropriate notices of all those who are identified in any capacity with Chicago's Educational, Social, Civil, Professional, Financial, Industrial and Commercial affairs.
The work contains an Alphabetical Record of Chicago's Business Men, Merchants, Manufacturers, Builders, Financiers, Lawyers and Jurists, Physicians, Clergymen, Educators and other Progressive Citizens who hold positions of trust and honor in their chosen vocation in the various lines of human effort.
These Representative Citizens of character and influence, by their enterprise and thrift, by their activity and sagacity in business, and by their zeal in educational, social and public matters, have contributed vastly to the moral, spiritual and material prosperity of the community in which they live.
As Builders and Merchants, they have erected buildings and illumined the marts of trade; in the field of Science and Medicine they have obtained great prominence in the arena of Statesmanship they have produced men of thought and men of action; while at the Bar and in the administration of Justice they have shown erudition and wisdom. As Clergymen, Educators and Lecturers they have occupied high places; and as Artists, Musicians, Composers and Authors, they have contributed profusely to social life.
Of many men more might have been written. But where not enough has been said, the fault must be attributed to the indifference of the person mostly interested. The Editor is only too pleased to receive Data to the end that each and everyone may receive due recognition and an authentic record.
We feel confident that this authentic collection of Chicago's foremost leaders of Life and Thought will be an invaluable acquisition to current Literature, and will meet with a hearty welcome at the hands of an intelligent public.
With such continued and courteous co-operation and support our best efforts will be directed in making Herringshaw's City Blue Book of Biography more and more complete from year to year.
Not all listings in this book apply to persons living in Rogers Park or West Ridge. We will only concentrate on those individuals listed that actually reside in either of our two neighborhoods. Sadly, no address information is provided.
