Lawrence Joseph Lincoln
Lieutenant General, United States Army
General George A. Lincoln (1907-1975) served as professor of social sciences,
USMA (1947-1969) and as chairman of the department (1954-1969). After retiring
in 1969, he headed the Office of Emergency Preparedness until 1973.
His younger brother, Lieutenant General Lawrence
J. Lincoln (born 1909, died 2000), graduated from the United States Military
Academy in 1933 and was known as 'Little Abe." But George Lincoln was actually
smaller than his brother, hence, Wilson's observations about the elder
brother: "'Big Abe' we called him, although he was 'little Abe.'"
