Online City Encyclopedias – Detroit and Philadelphia

We have come across two more of these works. The Encyclopedia of Detroit (Detroit Historical Society) features articles arranged alphabetically or by broad topics; you can also search using full text. In addition, a timeline is included and a special feature entitled Arsenal of Democracy that singles out Detroit companies that played a significant part in the war effort during World War II. The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia (based at Rutgers-Camden) provides linked writings by themes or full text search; it also has a timeline, maps, an informative blog, and a 300+ page bibliography.
