Tennessee AHGP

A Dictionary Of Distinguished Tennesseans

By Albert V. Goodpasture

The following list is both incomplete and imperfect. The reader will no doubt discover the omission of many names that ought to have a place in every list of eminent Tennesseans. He cannot help noticing that the dates of birth and death of many well-known Tennesseans are not given. I have undertaken to make the information given as accurate as possible. The time and labor in getting up a paper of this character is very great. The amount of research necessary to ascertain a single date is sometimes quite out of proportion to its value. I have given the matter what time I could, and have found it necessary to publish the list thus incomplete, or not at all. As I have thought it might be useful I have ventured to adopt the former course. All who can add other names or supply data missing in the names herein contained will confer a favor by mailing them to the author for use in a subsequent and larger list.
