Search the Dictionary of Virginia Biography by Occupation

In addition to occupations, this category includes achievements and awards (such as recipients of the Medal of Honor), fields of renown or infamy (such as principals in criminal cases), and events (such as Bacon's Rebellion). Begin by selecting a general Occupation Category. For example, selecting the general Occupation Category of Religion will list all subjects of all religions and denominations. You can refine your search by selecting "Specific Occupation" or "Specific Occupation 2," when available. For example, you can narrow your search of Religion by selecting Methodist and then further refine your search by selecting the subcategories of Bishop, Clergy, Lay leader, or Missionary.
