What a coup for the McLean County Museum of History to have Douglas L. Wilson speak!
He is on any Abraham Lincoln fan's list of top Lincoln scholars in the nation. He is the leading authority on the work of William Herndon, Lincoln's long-time law partner and biographer which dominates any study of Lincoln before the White House.
Doug is a prolific author who has written or edited seven influential books about Lincoln. This includes three books about Herndon, co-edited with his close friend and associate at Knox College, Rodney O. Davis. The most recent, Herndon on Lincoln: Letters, will be offered for sale and signing before and after this free program at the Museum.
Doug is an engaging speaker - precise and articulate in his presentation. He was the lead speaker at the prestigious annual Lincoln Symposium in Springfield last month. Do not miss this event. It is one of the most significant Lincoln programs the Museum has offered in a long time.
I hope to see you at 1 p.m. this Saturday, March 12 at the Museum.
