Lincoln, Lester Levi (1895-1967) | Southern Illinois University Special Collections Research Center

Name: Lincoln, Lester Levi (1895-1967)


Historical Note:

Lester Levi Lincoln lived at 243 Prospect Avenue in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  He served in Company F, 354th Infantry, 89th Division.  He entered service on April 26, 1918, arrived in France on June 24, participated in St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne campaigns, and was stationed in Germany with the Army of Occupation until March 1919, when he returned through France and reached the U.S. at the end of May.

In 1921-22, Lincoln applied for compensation for several medical conditions, but was rejected.  A pocket diary from 1938 suggests that he worked for General Electric, perhaps as a repairman.
