Biographies for Grown-Ups

Vintage e-books

This page is unique in that I have not yet read a single one of these books.  I hope to, and have collected here the various biographies that piqued my interest as I searched.  I haven’t read any of them, and do not yet know the worth of the biographers I have chosen.  They are, however, all on my personal reading list.

Many more biographies can be found by searching Project Gutenberg or Google Play.  Often multiple authors have written accounts of the same life.  Think of this list as a beginning, rather than a definitive collection.
