Welcome to our brand-new website, complete with over 45 years worth of accumulated knowledge relating to our inductees.
We have digitized our collection of biographies of over 600 famous (and not-so-famous) contributors to Rhode Island's strong place in US and World history. We hope this site will be both an interesting place to discover the richness of our state's past, as well as a useful tool for students and history buffs to do research.
If you have any suggestions, or see anything amiss, please let us know, and check back often as we build onto our database! In the meantime, please browse our inductees and learn a little about the rich history of Rhode Island!
