"Henry Adams (1838–1918) was one of the most distinguished American intellectuals of his time. His nine-volume history of the United States between 1800 and 1817 is still highly regarded, and his autobiography, The Education of Henry Adams, written in the third person, is regarded as one of the masterpieces of American literature."See works by Henry Adams in Gateway to the Great Books (10 Vol., 1963) volumes 6 and 10.
