Excerpt from Betas of Achievement Being Brief Biographical Records of Members of the Beta Theta Pi, Who Have Achieved Distinction in Various Fields of Endeavor There are doubtless in the book many errors of inclusion and exclusion. They are unavoidable in a compilation of this kind. For instance, we might find a man listed as President and General Manager of the Amalgamated Universal Machinery Company, when actually he has a desk room in a small office building in a village, and another man listed as Sixth Vice President of the General Oil Company and Local Superintendent, and find that he has charge of a business of millions of dollars a year and has under his jurisdiction an army of thousands of men. The necessary knowledge to make the right selection is not within the grasp of any one person. It may very well result, therefore, that persons widely known within their own communities have been omitted and those relatively obscure have been included. If atten tion is called to such fact, a record will be made of them for future use, if occasion for such use should ever arise. The statements are doubtless inaccurate somewhat in detail, due to forgetfulness, and the usual percentage of error arising from the transcription of hundreds of names with constantly recurring identical descriptive phrases and the usual errors of typesetting. The fraternity is to be congratulated on the magnificent showing it is enabled to make. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
