TEnNesseanS 1901

                ... Historic Photographs of Who's Who in Tennessee


   George Whitworth

In the 416 pages of "Tennesseans", over 800 historic portraits are presented.  It's literally a "Who's Who" for the Tennessee of 1901.   And it's one of the most remarkable reference works available for this early period.  The Tennessee historian will undoubtedly use this book daily.  And every public library in the state should have a copy.  If an early, historic Tennessean is not depicted here, it's probably because no photo was available at the time the book was published. 

Because this website is dedicated to "Historic-Memphis" and the "Tennesseans"  is over 416 pages, we have posted only the photographs-information related to historic Memphians.  The portraits below have been separated so they can be alphabetized on the website - for easier research.


< Sincere thanks to George Whitworth, Memphis Attorney-Historian-Collector, for allowing us to scan and post  his book >
< Special thanks to Maureen Thoni White,  Historic-Memphis.com team member,  for her excellent scanning of the book >
