I have many stories of my times on The Hill at Lincoln Institute. Stories frozen in memory and begging to be told. This book is an attempt to share them with an all too quickly dwindling alumni and their families and friends of Lincoln Institute. I include incidents, some joyous and some mournful. Some serious and some just down-right silly. The beginning and ending of brief courtships and more importantly, the establishment of a lifelong bond with very special people. From the First Family all the way down to those who maintained the grounds will be remembered in this undertaking. The mal-equipped athletic department who would win championship competitions in spite of public opinion. It's called the "Lincoln Spirit." That spirit manifested itself on "The Hill."
