Overview

Why is it that the members of a few families sprouted so many useful and famous careers, such as the Jameses, the Adamses, the Holmeses. And the Beechers. Is it a peculiar gene? Or perhaps the family environment is somehow conducive to genius? Out of eleven (!) children, ten of the Beechers secured a national reputation in one form or another.
