Since 1851, more than 200,000 people have been the subjects of obituaries in The New York Times. Join us this summer as we revisit many of these memorable lives.
Memorable lives--there are many ways to interpret a "memorable" life. For some it would be a life of service to others. For others it would be a great political or military leader. Still others are memorable for the adversity they had to overcome. And then there's the 21st. century edition of memorable--someone who has made a name for him or herself through social media! Here at the Library, we have biographies of all kinds of memorable people!
