A new entry will appear in the next edition of one of the world's oldest reference books, the Chambers Biographical Dictionary. In the 2002 edition that is being published this week, Stella McCartney's 150 word biography will appear alongside her father's entry. According to the book's editor, Una McGovern, "It is a difficult job for editors to decide who goes in. We try to reflect international coverage and who people would look up. The basic criteria have kept the same since the first edition in 1897 -- achievement and recognition. Those are the key watchwords."
