The Lincoln High School Alumni Association Archives was established to preserve the heritage and history of the public education institution Lincoln High School.
The Archives maintains a dynamic collection of materials that will cultivate academic and educational research as a means to enrich community interest through access, use, and relevancy. The LHSAA Archives seeks to instill an appreciation for the past and create connections with the future through active work with the next generations of Lincoln High students and alumni.

HOW YOUR DONATION SUPPORTS PRESERVING THE ARCHIVES
The archives are located at First United Methodist Church. A generous donation by Carrie Saito ‘56 in memory of her brother Norio ‘57 sustained operations through 2019.
Your donation will help defray rental and operational expenses in the year to come.
An expanded home will be located in the new Lincoln when it is completed in 2022.
A part-time curator is needed to process donations, maintain the collection, and help with recording research.
We are always in need of supplies for mailing, postage, and archive-secure containers. We also need a big-screen computer and color copier/scanner to archive large documents.
The Abe Lincoln medallion (see article below) was restored with your donations. Additional items need your help.
Copies of The Cardinal (Times) and yearbook dating back to 1895 are on file for most years. We are working to have them digitized and searchable for people doing genealogical and historical research.
