This early entry in the Who's Who series contains nearly thirteen thousand sketches for prominent, living residents of the six New England states, each incorporating in brief compass data on occupation, education, family, religious affiliation and professional, cultural and military accomplishments.

This book was an offshoot of the broader Who's Who in America series, which provided nearly three thousand of the sketches for the present volume, to which another ten thousand new sketches were added. Inclusion in this volume was based on invitation from the editor. The data in each sketch, arranged in a standard sequence, was provided by the subject of the sketch, some providing more and some providing less than others.

Of greatest interest to genealogists, each subject provided his or her date and place of birth, with the names of both parents, including the maiden surname of the mother. When applicable, the sketch also gives the name of the spouse or spouses, with the date of marriage, and a list of all children. When the children had already attained adulthood, additional information on their marriages and careers is also sometimes given. On occasion, the subjects provided additional details of ancestry, sometimes naming an immigrant ancestor to the New World.

The biographical sections provided details on education, professional positions, military service, membership in clubs and civic societies, honors and awards received, religion, publications and much more, including current residential and business addresses.
