Exactly one year ago, Jamesboswell.info had been lying pretty much dormant for some time, due to limited time on the part of the webmaster and an obsolete technical platform. Most of 2018 has been spent making up for that, and the site is now well and truly ready for 2019 and the years to come!
Do you want to learn about some of the many people, Boswell met throughout his eventful life? Have you read about someone in his journals, who you want to know more about? Have a look at our biographical index of 450+ people from Boswell's own life.

Boswell has inspired thousands of scholars, authors, collectors and historians to study and write about him, about his life (as well as his Life) and about the 18th century in general. You can read about some of the most illustrious of these in our index of Boswellians.
