The National Association of Investigative Specialist is happy to release the names of the investigators it has determined to be on the top list of the Twenty-five investigators of the Century.
As the century will be nearing the end of its last days, we at NAIS feel that a PI profile article on each of these individuals will be of great interest to all.
We will be submitting short biographical sketches on the Internet , later to be extended, with photographs, and more information to published in book form which is a work in progress and may be released sometime in the next few years.,
We greatly encourage those who have known these individuals to submit positive comments and true stories to reflect the individuals in a positive manner for publication consideration.
There are numerous reason these investigators have been named. Some named for the contributions to the betterment of the field, some for world wide attention gained, some for their flamboyant nature.
Unfortunately some of these are no longer with us, and we need more information on those persons.
They were all picked through a very tedious process. Last not being first and first not being last.
So without further ado:

Our first biographical sketch's on the Internet will include:
Pinkerton will be included in the sketches because he was the "first Private Eye" and led the way for others.
Included first, because I know him best and because of the enormous information NAIS has on him.
A man who's knowledge surpasses his education. (which is considerable)
A great investigator, with a powerful insight. A man ahead of his time.
Again, let me indicate that no ranking has been applied to the investigators listed, or to the order the sketches will be publicized.
