The Lincoln Club of Delaware

The Lincoln Club of Delaware

Lincoln Collection

Founded in Wilmington in 1929 for the purpose of celebrating the life and career of the sixteenth President of the United States, the primary activities of the Lincoln Club of Delaware have always centered around the Club’s annual dinners and programs commemorating the February 12th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. Following dinner, at the Hotel Du Pont, which featured a speech by the historian and advertising executive Bruce Barton, the attendees adjourned to the Playhouse where they viewed a live broadcast performance by Raymond Massey.in the role of Abraham Lincoln on The Cavalcade of America, a weekly national radio program presented by Du Pont. Displayed here are items from the Archives of the Lincoln Club of Delaware relating to the Club’s first dinner on February 12, 1941.
