Page  7 INTRODUCTORY When the first edition of THE BOOK OF DETROITERS was published in 1908 it found a large constituency awaiting it. The residents of Detroit, especially the business men, had long felt the need of just such a careful and comprehensive biographical cyclopedia as a book of reference. This was a field that had hitherto been entirely unoccupied, and the new book covered it so completely that it was at once accorded a prompt recognition and most cordial reception. Consequently the new reference book soon found its way to the desks of merchants, bankers, manufacturers, and professional men generally; into newspaper offices; to the reference shelves of libraries; and into the homes of the people. And wherever installed it proved itself a mine of valuable information. However, in the course of a few years, as the city grew in popula — tion and new business enterprises sprang up, with new people taking part in the city's life, it was found that a revised edition of THE BOOK OF DETBOITERS was necessary to bring the work up to date and to make it adequate to meet the public demand. To supply this obvious need this new and enlarged edition has been prepared, and it is believed that all requirements have been fully met. The mechanical changes that have been made in the book will be recognized as a distinct improvement. The smaller type employed makes it possible to print a much larger number of sketches without materially increasing the bulk, as the aim has been to keep it of convenient size, while the division of the page into two columns will be found to facilitate both reading and reference work. In order that the authenticity of the published sketches may be understood, it is apropos to say, in this connection, that all the sketches in both editions have been written from data furnished by the persons themselves. To bring all the sketches that appeared in the volume of 1908 up to date for this volume, they were sent out for personal revision and for the latest data. It will thus be seen that the entire book has been practically written anew, and that every sketch is in fact an autobiography. In making selections for the new biographies the same care has 7

Page  8 8 INTRODUCTORY been taken, as in the first edition, to keep the personnel of the book thoroughly representative of the best intellectual and business life of the city. Every available source has been made use of, and the merits and claims of the individual in each case have been carefully considered. In every particular the most painstaking care and experienced methods have been employed to make the work as nearly perfect as possible. The new volume cannot fail to give satisfaction to the people of Detroit, who are proud of their beautiful and progressive city, and of the men who contribute to its success. In the concise biographical sketches contained in its pages the business man will be able to find a synopsis of the careers of many of his competitors and patrons, together with a vast amount of personal information about others of his fellow-citizens which may be of benefit to him, both from a business and social standpoint. As a matter of fact, the book contains more interesting and valuable information about the living men of Detroit than all other books combined. An examination of the book will show that a large number of new names have been added. These have been recruited from various sources. In the lapse of time since the first edition was issued many important changes have taken place in the personnel of Detroiters who are "worth while." Many ambitious young men have come to the front, while a number of business and professional men who were then obscure have become prominent, and have therefore achieved eligibility. A large number also have been supplied by newcomers, men of capital and worth, who, attracted by the rapid growth and prosperity of Detroit, have become residents of the city and have entered into its large business enterprises. The names of some persons who have been much in the public eye have not been included, but the strict alignment as to business vocation and standing have excluded those who have acquired only a passing notoriety. The absence of other names, in some instances of persons of note in the community, will be regretted; but for this absence the publishers are not responsible, as in all such cases the persons failed to respond to the solicitation to furnish the necessary biographical data. Many life sketches that appeared in the volume for 1908 have been omitted from the new edition for various reasons. Some persons have died, and for that reason are no longer eligible, as THE BOOK OF DETROITERS includes biographies only of the living. Some are no longer

Page  9 INTRODUCTORY 9 residents, and a few are no longer considered of sufficient importance to be retained. However, in each case of omission, the name of the subject has been entered in regular alphabetical order, referring the reader for the sketch to Vol. 1908. The date of death and place of removal are given when they could be ascertained. This feature of the book will be appreciated by those who may desire to obtain authentic information about men who were prominent in the business and professional life of Detroit in the early years of the twentieth century, but who have passed from mortal activities and left no other record of their life and deeds. The making of the book has been no easy task, but the fact that it is, all things considered, the most complete, reliable and convenient biographical compendium of notable living Detroiters ever published makes the labor involved seem worth while. THE BOOK OF DETROITERS also commends itself to public esteem as being more than an ephemeral publication, whose usefulness departs with the day and generation it represents. It is, in fact, a work of authority on the life records of leading Detroiters of the present day, and therefore worthy of preservation. To the busy newspaper man, as well as the business man, it will prove invaluable in his work, as by its use he will be able to avoid many exasperating errors when writing in haste about persons with whom he cannot communicate, assured that the information he finds therein is thoroughly reliable. The genealogist likewise may consult it to advantage, knowing that practically all its life histories have the authenticity of personal approval. While prepared particularly for Detroiters, this volume has, in fact, a far wider field of interest and usefulness. In this age of the world when steam and electricity have fairly eliminated time and space, the business interests of the entire country, and even of foreign lands, have come into such intimate and complex relations that a dependable biographical cyclopedia of any one of our large cities has necessarily a national as well as a local interest. The business man of New York or Chicago, or any other large city, has almost equal need to be able to obtain information of his confreres in other communities as in his own, Hence, this comprehensive collection of the life sketches of the business men of so large and important a city as Detroit should be included in the business equipment of mercantile, industrial, and financial establishments everywhere. February 1, 1914.
