U.S. #1121 showcases Noah Webster, who completed the first version of his American Dictionary of the English Language in 1806. It wasn’t the first American dictionary – Samuel Johnson, Jr., published one in 1798 – but Webster’s work had the much greater impact. It helped standardize American pronunciation.
 
Noah Webster Publishes Dictionary
Noah Webster (1758-1843) compiled Webster’s Dictionary in 1806. Although he thought of it as a preliminary work, it was the finest dictionary of its time. Over the next 20 years, he worked to expand his dictionary. In 1828, he published his American Dictionary of the English Language. The two-volume dictionary had 70,000 entries that included literary words plus technical terms from the arts and sciences.
 
Today, Webster’s Dictionary is the standard resource material for word definitions and reference.
