Lincoln Biography
A facsimile of Abraham Lin
coln’s handwritten autobiography
was presented to the University
on the birthday of the nation’s
sixteenth president by Walter P.
Fell of Eugene, Dr. R. C. Swank,
librarian, has announced.
The autobiography was written
in 1859 because Jesse W. Fell,
grand uncle pf the Eugene man,
thought the people should know
more about their leader, and so
asked Lincoln to write it. The fac
simile shows the original to be
three pages long and in Lincoln’s
own handwriting.
_ The original manuscript was
presented to the Library of Con- I
gress in Washington, D. C., Wed- j
nesday by Rev. Robert Dale Rich
ardson of Medford, Mass., Jesse
Fell’s great grandson. Several
facsimiles of the original were j
published in 1872, one of which
the University now possesses.
Lincoln ends his short autobiog
raphy with these words:
“If any personal description is
thought desirable, it may be said,
I am in height, six feet four inches,
nearly; lean in flesh, weighing on
an average 180 pounds; dark com
plexion with coarse black hail’,
and grey eyes—no other marks or
brands recollected.”
