QUESTIONNAIRE FOR THE 1929-30 EDITION OF
Who's Who IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL

Your biography will be edited solely from information given us by yourself.

The scope of data asked for herewith is more complete than that asked for in the questionnaire of two years ago as you will see from you biography in that edition. This questionnaire reflects a digest of comment and criticism of many people on the last volume and our own careful study of the work of other compilers.  Although we offer the option on this page of correcting your old biography we would much prefer your filling out this new questionnaire.

We will send, for you information and correction, a galley proof--sample below--of your biography in type and as it will appear in the volume.  We will take care to represent you accurately but cannot accept responsibility for errors which may creep in.
