The reviews of the first edition of Who’s Who in America are very positive.
“This book will be indispensable to every reader of newspapers, to every library, and to every man and woman who reads or writes.” –The Chicago Tribune
“It is certainly something new in American bookmaking and occupies a field quite apart from biographical compilations and encyclopedias, which deal almost exclusively with persons whose name has survived them and passed into history. The object of this work is to present information concerning the living.” –The Detroit Free Press
“In the editorial room, the home library and the businessman’s office will be consulted daily.” –The New York Tribune
“This much-longed-for, convenient book is at last before us.” –The New York Times
