Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788426346, CD-ROM)

This volume "covers a wide field, comprising the border counties of Aroostook and Washington, Hancock of the southern coast, central Piscataquis, and far-reaching Somerset. With upward of four hundred and seventy names in the index, denoting that number of biographical sketches of prominent workers in various fields of useful activity, factors of progress and worthy of remembrance, this book may be considered...fairly representative of the industrial, the professional, and the public life of its locality in the closing years of the nineteenth century. In addition to biographical lore, there is genealogical detail and family history. "...the special province of biography is to show the worth and importance of the individual in society, to emphasize the power of personality." The fullname index provides easy access to each individual biography and a number of portraits highlight the text.
