| Linclon School's first class on May Day 1889||Text from the back of the photograph|
Dear Lincoln Community,
Our names are Joe Palmer and Stewart Martin. Joe is a long time Lincoln supporter and volunteer who’s done the heavy lifting in the archives for the past twelve years. Stewart is a Lincoln dad, professional photographer and family archivist who recently joined Joe in this endeavor. We are writing to ask for donations of photographs, glass plate negatives, old uniforms, yearbooks, school pamphlets, jewelry, memorabilia etc... anything in above categories that will help round out our collection. We are especially interested in pre-1940 material because this is where our collection is the weakest.
Please talk to your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins; anyone who either went to Lincoln or knows someone who did. Ask them if they’d consider looking through their basements, attics and scrapbooks to see if they’ve got anything pertaining to Lincoln they’d be willing to donate.We now have a permanent, climate-controlled home and would like to thank Julia Eells, Charles Cofone, Susan Kenny ’57, and the class of 1959 for their invaluable help supporting the archives. If anyone’s interested in a tour or becoming involved we will be pleased to give you a tour and chat about this wonderful endeavor.
Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
