About this Item

2 v. 25 cm. xii, [2] 632 (vol. I); vii, [2], 686 pages )Vol. II). Illustrations. Footnotes. Maps. Bibliographical Essay. Index. In boxcase. Boxcase has some wear and soiling. Name of previous owner present. Roscoe Carlyle Buley (July 8, 1893 - April 25, 1968) was an American historian and educator. Buley authored numerous articles, reviews, and books, winning the 1951 Pulitzer Prize for History for his 2-volume work The Old Northwest: Pioneer Period 1815-1840 (1950). He won the Elizur Wright Award for The American Life Convention, 1906-1952: Study in the History of Life Insurance (2 vols.) (1953). Noted for always having an open door to students who wished to chat, in 1962 Indiana University's Sigma Delta Chi journalism society presented him the Brown Derby Award for being the most popular professor on campus. The Old Northwest is an unparalleled account of the pioneer period, the problems of settlers, and the westward movement of the American people. No historian, professional or otherwise, who is interested in the history of the region comprising Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and parts of Minnesota can afford to be without this book. Based on nearly twenty-five years of research, it is that rare classic which appeals to specialist and general reader alike. Bookseller Inventory # 58271
