Dear Members:


I am extremely pleased to announce that we have entered into an agreement with the University of Illinois Press to publish our annual publication, now called the Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association. The format, as you can see, is quite similar, and the philosophy behind the publication the same as always: to bring you the best in current Lincoln scholarship and to keep you abreast of developments in the field.


The new agreement promises more efficient and broader distribution for our publications, but it will not alter the terms or benefits of your membership. They remain the same.


Frank J. Williams
