Description:The DNB contains biographical information on persons who lived in the geographical area of the "British Isles." Included are people "from the earliest times" through the present. The DNB is particularly strong in persons involved in public life (politics, government, the church, the army and navy), but it also includes many from the worlds of scholarship, art, literature, architecture and education, with entries also for "actors and actresses, sporting figures, criminels, rebels, secularists, and heretics."
Notes:The DNB on CD-ROM is searchable by names, by word or combination of words and by phrases, as well as by occupation and other fields.
