Press Reference Library; Western Edition; Being the Portraits and Biographies of Progressive Men of the West Who Have Helped in the Development and History Making of this Wonderful Country.

THE "PRESS REFERENCE LIBRARY" is primarily a publisher's utility library — a work of reference wherein can be found in correct form, the basic facts, from birth down to date, regarding the lives of men of note and substantial achievement, as well as the younger men, whose careers are certain, yet still in the making, together with halftones from latest photographs of the men referred to.

Modern newspapers and periodicals attach great importance to illustration; in fact, most editors regard it as of equal importance with news.

Newspapers require pictures of persons and places for reproduction with current happenings. Although they exhaust ег-ery resource to secure up-to-date photographs, they often are compelled to reprint old-style line cuts or wash drawings, and in the majority of cases have no picture at all.

The facts regarding men are often jumbled owing to the necessity of gathering them from whatever source available on a moment's notice. Every precaution has been taken to have the facts herein correct in every detail and the photographs of recent date.

The work will be the ready reference book of the newspaper editor, writer and artist. This publication will go to all the International (Hearst) News Service and leading Associated Press and United Press, News Service papers in the United States, and to the leading illustrated weekly and monthly publications under the classification of "National Periodicals." The natural home of the Press Reference Library is the newspaper and periodical Editorial Room, the work will, in addition, be placed by the International News Service, in all the leading public and college libraries of the country.

Most of the photographs in this publication are from the studios of Moffett, Matzene, Hartsook, Fitzel, Steckel and Gibson, Sykes and Fowler, to whom much credit is due for the artistic success attained.
