Articles range from 1,000 to 6,000 words, contain a photo of the individual, and provide a concise summary of achievements. Also detailed wherever possible, are family members; educational background; names of spouses and marriage and divorce dates; addresses of residences; and cause of death and place of burial. Among those profiled in Vol. 4: Ron Brown, Jeffrey Dahmer, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Clement Greenberg, Burl Ives and Richard M. Nixon. Each volume contains cumulative occupation and birthplace indexes.
