ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Beveridge spent most of his final years writing the biography of Abraham Lincoln, which was posthumously published in two volumes in 1928. His biography was very scholarly and stripped away the myths about Lincoln to reveal a complex and imperfect politician. In 1939, the American Historical Association established the Beveridge Award in his memory through a gift from his widow and donations from members.
