Parton, James, et. al, Sketches of Men in Progress (New York 1870)

Cited on p32 of Gentlemen of Prop..., as a good source for James Watson Webb. A miscellany of biographical sketches?

Parton is sometimes called "the father of American biography". His works stand up well today, and his biography of Andrew Jackson is used in all modern biographies.

He is also know for extensive quoting of documents of the time (whether that is true in this case or not).
