This is the first edition of this hefty reference to be published by Congressional Quarterly, though it is the 16th edition in a series that has been published on an intermittent basis by both private publishers and the federal government since 1859 (most recently, the 1989 edition was published by the government to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Congress). It features personal and career detail on 11,400 men and women who served in the US and Continental Congresses, as well as a complete listing of Congresses and Cabinet Members. This edition adds information beginning with the 79th Congress (1945-1947), including the political division of the Congresses, district numbers for Representatives, and party affiliations for all Members. Thumbnail photographs and engravings of the appropriate presiding officers have also been included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
