The only firm criterion for inclusion was that the subject at some point in his life lived in the Hamilton area. The biographies reveal the early communities of the bay and the escarpment from early settlement, through war and rebellion to the emerging community of the mid and late ni n e t e e n t h century. The figures included represent a broad cross-section of life: politicians, clergy, merchants, settlers, actors, artists, and even criminals. These, then, are the men and women of the region's fascinating past." An A-Z c ov er in g Ha mi lt on biography from its origins to 1875.
