This is a great book for all those little tidbits of Washington DC in the first century. I used it to write an historical fiction novel (Ireland to America, The Last Generation) on Martin Renehan, an Irish doorman in the administrations from Andrew Jackson through James Polk and a government employee through Abraham Lincoln. It is a great reference and easy to use with a word search engine. Thank you Google Books for making these old books available to all.
