Biography in Context is a wonderful resource for information about famous (and infamous) historical and modern-day figures. You can search for an individual's name, or search by occupation, nationality, birth place, or death place. In the advanced search feature, you can choose to view particular kinds of documents, such as obituaries, diaries, or newspaper articles.
To access Biography in Context, go to the Library's website, select the Databases tab, choose Databases A-Z, and then B for biography. To access the database from off-campus, you will need your H number.
