I.S.--Biographical Sources

We covered biographical sources pretty well last week. Look over this list and make sure you are familiar with these sources.

One final word on biographies. An AUTObiography is a biography written by the person themselves. Often titled "My Life," autobiographies are simply a subcategory of biography.
