The Lincoln Fellowship of Wisconsin was founded in 1940 and incorporated in 1950. Its objectives are to unite admirers of Abraham Lincoln in a common bond of interest through membership in a common organization; to encourage a larger interest in scenes associated with Lincoln's life and work; to preserve Lincoln landmarks in Wisconsin; to promote research in Lincolniana; to observe each anniversary of the death of Lincoln and to pay tribute to his name on other suitable occasions; and to encourage the youth of our state to embrace the ideals he exemplified for those who follow.Each year, the members meet for a dinner program held near April 15, the anniversary of Lincoln's death. As part of this program, a speaker will address one of the many phases of Lincoln's life and career. This addess is later published by the Fellowship as a Historical Bulletin, which is distributed free to members. The Fellowship has published a Historical Bulletin nearly every year since 1940.
The annual membership dues for the Fellowship are $25. All members receive invitations to the Annual Meeting along with a copy of the Historical Bulletin. The Lincoln Fellowship of Wisconsin is a federally recognized non-profit, with volunteer officers and directors. The Fellowship welcomes new members, whether or not they live in Wisconsin, including individuals, colleges, universities, or any organization with an interest in the legacy of Abraham Lincoln.
