Bryan, the Great Commoner

Excerpt

The effort is to present the man, to realize his times--their influence on him and his on them.

Acknowledgment is due to many sources, and especially to the Nebraska State Historical Society (Addison E. Sheldon, Superintendent), Charles W. Bryan, Mrs. T. S. Allen (sister of W. J. Bryan), Jane Addams, Samuel Untermyer, Newton D. Baker, Josephus Daniels, H. T. Dobbins of Nebraska State Journal, Harvey E. Newbranch, editor of the Omaha World-Herald, the Yale University Library, the Harvard University Library, New York Society Library, New York Public Library, Mercantile Library of New York, the Library of Congress, the Department of State and the bibliography given at the end of this volume. The assistance of the persons and institutions named has been in supplying historical data. Mention of these names is made to record appreciation of helpful response to inquiry. It does not imply that any of the persons or institutions are responsible for the material or the point of view of this book.

All of the conversations, statements as to the thoughts of Mr. Bryan, descriptions of scenes, are taken from authentic records, carefully checked. Hence such "story effect" as there may be is not imaginary, but based on evidence.
