The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives has documented the lives of thousands of deceased Americans, both world famous and lesser known.

Each chronological volume in this series presents original scholarly biographies of notable Americans deceased in a particular time period. More than 2,300 prominent individuals are covered in all. Articles range from 1,000 to 6,000 words and provide a concise summary of the individual's 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. Each volume contains cumulative occupation and birthplace indexes.

In addition to single volumes in print or electronic format, volumes 1-7 of The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives are available as one rich text-only database consisting of 5,000 pages and 2,300 narrative biographical profiles. The database consists of original editorial content published from 1998-2006.
