First Report of the Committee on Devonshire Celebrities.

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol 9 (1877), pp. 103-119.


Rev. Treasurer Hawker

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Committee's initial report, presented at the Association's July 1877 Kingsbridge meeting provides a foundation catalogue of celebrity names, with some additional information intended as the beginning of a "skeleton biography of the county". The Committee's aim was ostensibly to collect memoirs of deceased Devonshire celebrities, and as well, verify the accuracy of the information, thereby "smoothing the path of future enquirers". Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the University of Michigan Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
