Reading through the Contents of this work, you will, no doubt, immediately recognize names of giants of scientific discovery: Galileo, Isaac Newton, Samuel F.B. Morse, Darwin, and perhaps several others. But few readers know the extent of the contributions made even by those we think we know. Among the other names are the discoverers of planets and their moons, of the nature of the geologic construction of our planet and forces that have and continue to shape it. Here are naturalists who ventured, at great peril, into unknown parts of the globe and discovered wonders at which we still marvel. Here are great inventors who created the bases of our modern technology, who should be known and appreciated. When the major advances in science and technology of the twentieth and twenty-first century were created, the creators of those modern wonders knew the names and stories of those who laid the groundwork. They continue to pay their respect and acknowledge the debt they owe to those who made their own contributions possible.

MRS. SARAH KNOWLES BOLTON, author of "Poor Boys Who Became Famous," "Girls Who Became Famous," "Famous American Authors," "Famous American Statesmen," "Social Studies in England," "Stories From Life," "From Heart and Nature," etc., comes from good New England ancestry; descended on her father's side from Henry Knowles, who came to Rhode Island from London, England, in 1635, and on her mother's side from Colonel Nathaniel Stanley, of Hartford, Conn., one of the leading men of the colony, and from Colonel William Pynchon, one of the twenty-six incorporators of Massachusetts Bay Colony. She was graduated from the Hartford Seminary, established by Catharine Beecher; published a volume of poems, and in 1866 married Charles E. Bolton, A.M., of Massachusetts, an Amherst College graduate of '65. They removed to Cleveland, O., where, besides writing for various periodicals, she did much charitable work. She was secretary of the Woman's Christian Association, and Asst. Cor. Sec. of the Nat. W. C. T. U. She has twice visited Europe, spending two years in England, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Norway and Sweden, studying literary and educational matters, and the means used by employers for the mental and moral elevation of their employees. On the latter subject she read a paper before the American Social Science Association in 1883. She was for three years one of the editors of the Boston Congregationalist. She prepared several small books for the Cleveland Educational Bureau, conducted gratuitously by her husband, and described by Dr. Washington Gladden in the Century magazine, January, 1885. The Bureau was discontinued when Mr. Bolton gave his time to lecturing. Miss Frances E. Willard says of Mrs. Bolton, "She is one of the best-informed women in America, the chief woman biographer of our times."
