This book of biographical sketches of prominent citizens and early settlers was compiled by the J.H. Beers & Co. of Toronto. These records were compiled in 1906 and provide insight into citizens at that time. For some entries, there are images of the subject, and some even contain signatures. This book is made even more accessible by the accompanying index compiled by the Lambton Branch OGS which is much more extensive than the one included in the book.
