Who Was Who update
Who Was Who has proved invaluable in identifying not only those who shaped the events of their time but others, now forgotten, who were familiar names to the journalists and diarists who recorded the events of the day. With the publication of new editions of the first three volumes of Who Was Who, covering the years between 1897 and 1940, we have a unique snapshot of that era. Explore it here.
