HistoryMakers Biographical Database

Washington State’s Legacy Project on the Secretary of State’s website has recently launched a HistoryMakers Biographical Database. It is built by volunteers and is still in its beginning stages as a database. You should see the number of entries increase over time.

Currently, the database contains information about:

  • governors and lieutenant governors
  • secretaries of state
  • treasurers
  • U.S. Senators and Representatives
  • and selected other elected officials

You can search by first and last name of a known individual or browse by names under Office, Party Affiliation, or Field.

I selected “education” as a field and “California” as a keyword. I received 3 results:

Kohl-Welles, Jeanne
Kreidler, Myron
May, Catherine

This is what you see when click on a person’s name.
