This Administrative History of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site, ABLI-1, has been prepared in order to provide a documented tool to be used in the management and administration of the area. It is hoped that some knowledge of past policies and practices at the Birthplace will be of help to administrators both on and off the site in future planning and development.
I wish to thank Edwin C. Bearss of the Division of History for reading the manuscript and providing me with guidance in its preparation. I also extend my gratitude to Superintendent Jerry Schober of Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site and his staff for their help in the researching and development of this report.
