Publisher: University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI
Publication Date: 1960
Signed: Signed by Author(s)
Mimeographed 14pp typescript (rectos only), 4to, staple holes at upper left. Near fine. Horn gave this lovely address as president of the University of Rhode Island before the Rhode Island General Assembly on February 12th, Lincoln's birthday. Accompanied by a Typed Letter Signed from him, 1p, 5½" X 8½", Kingston, RI, 1960 February 23. Addressed to Arnold Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Fine. "I am sending you my address on Lincoln at the request of Charles O'Neill," writes Horn. ".He is particularly interested in the paragraph at the bottom of page 3. I am hoping that the Rhode Island legislature will take action on my suggestion." (Which consists of: "Lincoln's two addresses in Rhode Island are of such significance in our history that I hope the State will both commemorate the occasions with some ceremony on the centennial anniversary, and mark with a suitable plaque or monument the places where these historic addresses were delivered.") Signed boldly in full in black ink. Horn (1908-99) was an educator who served as president of this university from 1958 to 1967 and spearheaded many advancements for that institution. Charles O'Neill (1910-97) was an author known in Civil War circles for his "Wild Train: The Story of the Andrews' Raiders." A most unusual and interesting pair. Bookseller Inventory # 9506
