If you don’t know the answers (and even if you do), you should try the Biography Reference Center, one of the online database resources available for free from the Fresno County Public Library.
Not every famous person has books written about them. Some people only get a paragraph in an encyclopedia, and others aren’t mentioned at all. With the Biography Reference Center, all you have to do is type in the name, and any articles on that person are only a click away.
