The Judge Warren L. Jones Lincoln Collection
A native of Nebraska, Warren L. Jones enjoyed a distinguished career on the federal bench in Florida. Early in his life he developed a deep and abiding interest in Abraham Lincoln, an interest that generated an extensive collection of books, pamphlets, and printed ephemera on the Great Emancipator. Attracted to LSU by the prominence of Civil War historian T. Harry Williams, Judge Jones donated his collection to the university in 1970. At the time of the donation it was widely regarded as one of the most outstanding collections of Lincolniana in private hands.
