"American Men of Mind" is a collection of short biographies of men of note in various disciplines. It is an absorbing collection of short biographies of men who made a difference in American history; most beginning life in very humble circumstances, both in the United States and in foreign countries. Although "men" is mentioned in the title, Mr. Stevenson also relates biographies of several women. This is a most interesting book. Burton Egbert Stevenson was an American author, anthologist, and librarian. As well as being a librarian, Stevenson wrote numerous novels, including four young adult's novels, edited others' works, and created numerous anthologies of verse, familiar quotations, and the like. Many of his anthologies are still in print.
