Who's Who in Iowa, 1940

Biographies from the Clayton county section, plus biographies of persons who were born or lived in Clayton co., but as of 1940 were living in another Iowa county. The biographies contain many abbreviations so the transcriber has taken the liberty of spelling out as many as possible for ease of reading. The Key of abbreviations can be viewed on the Audubon co. IAGenWeb

If you'd like a look-up from the book, contact Sharyl. Currently transcribed bios are in bold print - click on the letter to read the surnames starting with that letter.

Please do not re-post the biographies anywhere online without asking permission.

Transcribing the biographies is a work in progress - check back from time to time.
