             Biographical note 
             Richard H. Collins (1824-1889) was the son of Lewis Collins, author of 
                 Historical Sketches of Kentucky  (1848). An 1845 graduate of Centre College, Danville, Ky, and later of the Transylvania University School of Law, Richard Collins edited 
                 The Maysville Eagle  from 1845 to 1850, and again from 1853 to 1857. He practiced law in Maysville from 1851 to 1853, and in Cincinnati from 1862 to 1871. Collins traveled extensively in Kentucky and Tennessee and further south during the Civil War. In 1874 he published 
                 Collins' History of Kentucky , based on his father's earlier work.
