How to use these pages: 1) Consult these pages if you wish to write a biography for the DACB and are searching for ideas of people whose biographies do not yet appear in the DACB. If a name is listed and does not show a link in the column next to the name, then the DACB doesn't have a biography on that person. A link will lead to a DACB biography. 2) Consult these pages in order to avoid writing a duplicate biography by checking to see whether the DACB has a biography on a specific person.

*DACB Bibliography Complete bibliographic references noted in abbreviated form in the indexes and other useful sources.
