With more than one thousand clear, reproducible images depicting important people, events, and issues in this country's past and present, the four-volume American Historical Images On File "TM" set provides students and educators with a rich, easy-to-use source for augmenting and enhancing essays, reports, and classroom lessons.
Gathered from libraries and photo archives across the country, each image has been chosen for its artistic value, its ability to illustrate an important aspect of a particular event or subject's career, and its clear reproduction on any photocopier. The images include every possible medium -- photographs, engravings, woodcuts, paintings, line drawings, documents, maps, and more. Each image is accompanied by a caption that gives historical background.
Organized by field of endeavor, The Faces of America II provides images and capsule biographies of notable Americans from labor leaders to sports figures, from publishers to leaders in the arts. The 275 portraits in this volume show the diversity that is the hallmark of American life.
