Anyone with a love of history and Americana will find this book to be so much more than just a biography. Catherine Eddy Beveridge's life was a window to some of the most important historical events and personalities of her time. Through her Chronicle, the reader receives a highly insightful and unmatched perspective of social and political life in early twentieth-century America. Detailing her life and travels from the period spanning 1902 through 1908, and her marriage to Senator Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana, Catherine's world spanned Chicago, Indiana, Washington, D.C., and Europe. Her social standing and friendships offer a unique look at some of the most prominent and important personalities of the time, including Theodore Roosevelt, Henry James, the Marshall Field family, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Russian Emperor Nicholas II. The book is engagingly written in the biographic style and concludes with a "Dramatis Personae," in which the authors provide a complete list of the notable figures mentioned in the text-more than 350 personalities. Catherine's personal comments for each entry combine to make the "Dramatis Personae" a unique and very valuable historical account that cannot be found in any other resource. The Chronicle of Catherine Eddy Beveridge will be of special interest to historians and libraries in Illinois and Indiana, as well as a valuable resource for professors, students, and devotees of early twentieth-century American history.
