This supplement to the classic reference work, The Dictionary of National Biography records the lives of 748 men and women who died between 1971 and 1980. Though most are British subjects, there are entries on figures like Alfred Hitchcock who subsequently became an American, and on men who were never citizens but who spent formative years in Britain--people like Jomo Kenyatta, Robert Menzies and Archbishop Makarios. From politicians, lawyers, educators, royalty, and philosophers to artists, musicians, writers, entertainers and athletes, the entrants span the entire range of occupations and interests. In fact, the contributors to the volume are often as eminent as their subjects: the supplement features Harold Macmillan writing on Lord Egremont, Malcolm Muggeridge on E.B. Knox, and Philip Larkin on Barbara Pym. The supplement also includes a cumulative index to the DNB 1901-80.
