Book review: Lists of Note

Lists of Note follows on the footsteps of Letters of Note compiled by Shaun Usher.  This is a delightful book to dip in and out of for an interesting treat.  Many of the lists would be of interest to family history researchers and include:
George Washington’s slaves
Reasons for admission – West Virginia Hospital for the insane

Others include:
The cowboy code by Gene Autry
The 50 Dwarfs by Walt Disney
Frankly My Dear.. Selznick International Pictures
Houdini’s Scene and Prop list
How to attain smartness Edna Woolman Chase
President Roosevelt’s List of Birds
