    NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Marquis Who's Who, which
 has been publishing Who's Who in America since 1899, is pleased to announce
 several new initiatives:
     -- Who's Who in Asia - Due for publication in December of 2006, Who's Who
        in Asia will feature leading figures from a wide spectrum of
        endeavors. The book is expected to include over 25,000 profiles, from
        Kings and Prime Ministers to the stars of Bollywood, from Olympic
        champion athletes to groundbreaking scientists - you will find their
        detailed biographies on the pages of Who's Who in Asia.
     -- Who's Who in American Art, now available online - Who's Who in
        American Art has been published by Marquis Who's Who for 26 editions.
        For the first time ever, the Who's Who in American Art database,
        featuring the biographies of over 14,000 artists, critics, curators,
        administrators, librarians, historians, collectors, conservators,
        educators, and dealers - everyone Who's anyone in the visual arts in
        the United States - is available through an online subscription.
     An invaluable tool for galleries, museums, researchers, art students
 and artists, this database is fully searchable and easy to use.
     -- Who's Who in America was a category on Jeopardy! - The Who's Who in
        America category was featured on the June 16 broadcast of Jeopardy!.
        Drawing on Who's Who in America's long and fabled history (the first
        edition was published in 1899), Jeopardy! featured a series of answers
        and questions taken from the 107-year history of the book. Plans are
        underway already for the next season of Jeopardy!, where the Who's Who
        theme will be expanded to include Who's Who answers/questions in a
        variety of fields.
     While there are many imitators on the market, Who's Who in America
 remains the industry's standard bearer. When it came time to bury the
 Millennium time capsule at the White House in 2000, Who's Who in America
 was included as a snapshot of the most important and influential people in
 America at the dawn of the new millennium.
     In a recent article in The New York Times, Who's Who in America was
 called "that venerable guide to American achievement ... it recognizes
 109,000 people and, by their inclusion recommends them to posterity and to
 America's collective memory."
