Putnam, 1954. 99 pages. black and white photos. this book is an alphabetical anthology of unique human beings; a portrait gallery in words and photographs of a hundred living people whom we, its self-appointed curators, both admire. our list is a personal one. it is not meant to be definitive, nor to represent every aspect of contemporary life. it is simply, in vintners' parlance, a first growth from our vineyard. a hundred is a purely arbitrary number: like the earl of westmoreland at agincourt, we could wish for ten thousand more.. 1st.
