Description

The small flier is a promotional item released by Truman State University to advertise its three-semester series in commemoration of the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. On the flier is a vignette image of Lincoln's right-side profile that fades into an illustration of the United States flag. The image is signed by the artist, Trimborn. The remainder of the flier features a 1 August 1958 Abraham Lincoln manuscript fragment. A nonfunctioning URL is also noted at the bottom.
