The Biographical Record is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in people affiliated
with Rensselaer during its formative years. It consists mainly of brief biographical sketches
of RPI graduates, faculty, directors, and trustees, plus engravings of some of the more
illustrious members of the Rensselaer community from 1824 to 1886. The compiler, Henry Bradford
Nason, was a member of the Institute's faculty from 1858 until his death in 1895.
