Ten years ago, at the end of the first half century of Nebraska's history, we issued a book of the portraits of men, who had been closely identified with the development of our state. This collection of men, who were the founders of the state, is not only a great pleasure to those who possess it, on account of the associations with the men whoe portraits appear in it, but is also a valuable historical document.
Many changes have taken place, even in a period of ten years, in this great commonwealth of ours, among the men who are making its present history, For that reason, it seemed desirable to publish a new book of portraits of our men who are prominenet in the various business, progessional and political activities of the period from 1904 to 1914.
