Harvard's Lincoln

by Houghton Library

Harvard’s Lincoln presents a selection of materials from Houghton Library’s collection of Lincolniana that is astonishing in breadth as well as diversity. The collection includes several recent acquisitions as well as books, manuscripts, and artifacts from the collection of William Whiting Nolen. Houghton’s Lincoln collection has been assembled in a fashion very much in keeping with the library’s tradition: through a combination of years of assiduous and visionary collecting and the benevolence of interested and knowledgeable donors. The purpose of the exhibit is threefold: to commemorate the Lincoln bicentennial and to promote Houghton Library’s relevant collections; to assert the library’s commitment to meeting the needs of its users, especially Harvard’s faculty and students; and, finally, to pay tribute to Alonzo Rothschild and William Whiting Nolen, two donors whose generosity built the foundation on which Houghton’s Lincoln collection rests. It is to them that Harvard’s Lincoln is dedicated.

Customer Reviews

Harvards Lincoln

Thank you for enriching American people with a wonderful link to our mighty country's past. A treasure trove to say the least. Everyone, dive in; there still is joy to be found in America at this time. Thank you Library of Congress!

Wonderful gift from Harvard for any person with wifi

While our airwaves are inundated with hosts supplant facts with their own opinions and sell them as fact, we have the ability to do our own research on a number of subjects and not just from Harvard. THIS is why the Internet and WWW were so promising as superhighways of information that can enrich and enlighten anyone who dares challenge their own world view with something that may upset their apple cart. Take a chance, listen to the professionals, even read several books or papers on the same subject in order to give yourself a taste of the range of thought on that particular subject. ANYTHING is better than willful ignorance.
