Dictionary Of National Biography
Like the DNB it does not seek to impose any strict definition of the nation.
Work on the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography began in 1992 with the appointment of Colin Matthew as editor of the new national biography .
Christine Nicholls , who was editor of the supplement volumes in the 1990s, became particularly well known .
The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is an organic development of the first DNB, including all of the subjects from the first Dictionary, but adding to them with the selections of our own age.
