Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Filled with unforgettable immigrant stories and heart-touching vintage photographs, this mammoth, gorgeously designed coffee-table encyclopedia brings us closer to the experience of the 12 million newcomers who passed through Ellis Island from the 1890s to the early 1950s. The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ellis Island is more than a reference shelf encyclopedia; it is a document that shows America becoming the America we know. Editor's recommendation

Meet the Author

Barry Moreno works at the Bob Hope Memorial Library at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum where he pursues his passionate interests in cultural history, literature and foreign languages as well as that fascinating immigrant world that once existed on Ellis Island. He wrote the first edition of The Encyclopedia of Ellis Island in 2004, and added dozens of new entries for this new edition. Moreno is also the author of The Statue of Liberty Encyclopedia, Italian Americans, Children of Ellis Island, Manhattan Street Scenes, Ellis Island’s Famous Immigrants, and, with Diethelm Knauf, co-editor of Leaving Home: Migration Yesterday and Today. He lives in New York City.

Lee Iacocca is Founding Chairman of The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1982 to lead the effort to restore and preserve the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. To date, under his leadership, the foundation has raised over $550 million to establish a lasting memorial to the millions of immigrants who helped build the United States. A proud son of hardworking Italian immigrants who came through Ellis Island, Iacocca is the former Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Chrysler Corporation. Iacocca is the author of three best-selling books, Iacocca, Talking Straight, and Where Have All the Leaders Gone?
