Each supplement volume adds 175 new individuals not covered in the 17-volume EWB and existing supplements, Like other volumes in the EWB series, Supplement 30 represents a unique, comprehensive source for biographical information on those people who, for their contributions to human culture and society, have reputations that stand the test of time.
