National Biographies

Gillow's Literary and Biographical History (A198) is the only complete dictionary of national biography in this list in that it covers clergy and laity. For other countries, the works included below must be used in conjunction with the various general national biographies such as the Dictionnaire de biographie fran├žaise. (See Sheehy's Guide to Reference Books [Chicago, A.L.A., 1986 Find a copy, pp. 279-313, for a complete list of titles).

The American Catholic Who's Who (A196) is the only continuing, contemporary biographical dictionary still publishing. Delaney's Dictionary of American Catholic Biography (A188) is an up-to-date source for U.S. Catholics.
