Biographies of numerous Knox County, Tennessee, residents in the late 1800s, and other historical material is included in this spiral bound booklet taken from three sources: History of Tennessee, originally published in 1887 by Goodspeed Publishing Co., Counties of Tennessee by Austin P. Foster (1923), and Tennessee, a Guide to the State (1939). The new 93-page 11 x 8 1/2 inch spiral-bound booklet is printed on 60# paper with the print enlarged for easier reading. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover. A booklet featuring Goodspeed's History of Knox County is also available.
