Other Abraham Lincoln–Related Collections
In January 2003, IHS received a grant from the Lilly Endowment that enabled us to acquire the Jack Smith Lincoln Graphics Collection (P 0406), the Daniel R. Weinberg Lincoln Conspirators Collection (P 0409), and a circa 1864 contemporaneous wet-plate collodion glass negative of the original Alexander Gardner wet-plate collodion portrait of Abraham Lincoln taken on Nov. 8, 1863 (P 0420). These acquisitions provided the impetus for us to create a finding aid describing other Lincoln-related materials located in the collections of the William H. Smith Memorial Library.
In contrast to standard collection guides that describe all the materials in a specific collection, this finding aid describes in detail Lincoln-related items from a variety of collections. “Lincoln-related” is defined as manuscripts written by or to Lincoln, certificates and endorsements with Lincoln’s annotation or signature, and manuscripts about Lincoln.
