History of Merriam-Webster dictionary

Noah Webster Picture
On April 14, 1828, Noah Webster copyrighted the first edition of the now famous Merriam-Webster dictionary. Webster was a brilliant American textbook pioneer and prolific author. He has been called the "Father of American Scholarship and Education." His blue-backed speller books taught five generations of children in the United States how to spell and read, and made their education more secular and less religious. We could use another Noah Webster today.
