The Oxford Biography Index is an authoritative and accurate index of notable people – their names, their dates, and their fields of activity.

Browsing the index

Browsing the index reveals exactly how much information it contains, and can help you disambiguate people with the same name. Use the links in the table below to navigate to the right part of the alphabet. You will find yourself on a page with a list of names, including the first occurrence of the surname you chose. Each name links to an entry in the index. Use the "previous" and "next" buttons to navigate from list to list.    > More about the index
