An unusual feature of this standard reference work on Pennsylvania place names is that it gives brief biographical and genealogical information about many of the persons whose names are inseparably connected with the counties, boroughs, cities, etc. It includes an extensive list of county histories, a table of Pennsylvania counties’ formation, and a general index of persons, places, and subjects. This is a reprint of the original edition of 1925, which was published as Pennsylvania State College Studies in History and Political Science, No. 1, College Series, No. 1.
