Weston Arthur Goodspeed was an editor and researcher of a considerable number of historical and biographical works of the latter nineteenth and early twentieth century. Among his many works are:
'Counties of Porter and Lake, Indiana' (1882)
'History of Crawford County and Ohio' (1881)
'History of Tennessee' (1886)
'History of the Goodspeed Family' (1907)

Most of his works fall under what have become to be called the 'subscription histories', which were quite popular in the latter part of the nineteenth century though the 1920s and can still be found today in many libraries and as reprints and have become a valuable resource for researchers, genealogists and historians.
