One of the most influential men in nineteenth-century America, Horace Greeley is remembered not only as the editor and publisher of the New York Tribune but also for his contribution to the profession of journalism, for his role in the nomination and election of presidential candidates; for his work toward a homestead law, and for the impact his voice had on the abolition of slavery. This bio-bibliography provides a useful guide to the literature on Greeley.
Beginning with a brief chronology of Greeley's life and a biographical sketch, the book then provides annotated entries, arranged chronologically and divided into two major sections: works by Greeley and works about Greeley. The first section on Greeley's own work includes chapters on his books and other published materials, other sources of Greeley writings, newspaper and printing establishments associated with him, and articles in periodicals. The second section includes chapters on biographical works and memorials to Greeley, other books useful to the study of Greeley, reference works and other edited materials, articles in periodicals, theses, manuscript collections with Greeley material, and government documents. The book also includes author and subject indexes. A useful guide for scholars, the volume will also be of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about Greeley.
