To many Americans, the name of Noah Webster (1758-1843) is synonymous with "dictionary." This 1881 biography covers his early life, his pioneering work on textbooks and spellers for children, his opposition to slavery, his political writings, and the years of preparation that went into his 1806 Compendious Dictionary of the English Language.
