Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies

The distinguished chair in Lincoln Studies was established in 2000 when Dr. Richard E. Vaden and his family donated $1.25 million for that purpose to honor their longtime friendship with then-UIS Chancellor Naomi B. Lynn and her husband, Robert. Dr. Lynn retired as chancellor on March 30, 2001 after serving nearly 10 years in that capacity. Here you will find a list of recipients of the Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies.
