First published in 1940, H.W. Wilson's Current Biography Yearbook combines a full year of the monthly magazine into a single, permanent edition. By presenting timely and impeccably accurate biographies of men and women of contemporary importance, this series provides a keen insight into the people shaping the modern world in various fields and influences.
Current Biography Yearbook offers ongoing access to the important personalities of today:
  • Includes the day's most talked-about and influential people
  • A remarkably wide range of professions
  • Obituaries, where appropriate, of figures profiled in previous yearbooks
  • A complete listing of all those profiled in the current year

Profiles are approximately 2,500 words and include biographical statistics and a bibliography for easy access to additional information. Photographs accompany many of the entries.

An invaluable source for researchers, teachers, students, and librarians, Current Biography Yearbook draws information from newspaper and magazine articles, books, the internet, observations of journalists and associates, and occasionally personal interviews or questionnaires completed by the subjects.
