Biographical / Historical
Albert Bushnell Hart (1854-1943) was an American historian and professor at Harvard University. He worked as the official historian of the United States Commission for the Celebration of the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of George Washington in the 1920s and 1930s. Hart spent years making automobile tours through England in search of places connected with the English Washingtons. It was on one such tour where he met Solloway, acquired the manuscript of Solloway's The English Washingtons, which Hart describes as: "a very careful genealogy of the ancestors of George Washington in England." Hart proceeded to attempt to have this volume published, though it appears to have remained unpublished.
