Mr. Lincoln

Anything before 1940 is history. Everything after is current. That’s what Lincoln historian Jim McKee claims.



(This story originally appeared in the November/December 2014 issue of Nebraska Life Magazine)


McKee's passion for Lincoln's past began as a child, watching the fledgling city grow alongside him. Now, after 75 years gathering long-forgotten nuggets of community history, the unofficially titled "Mr. Lincoln" works tirelessly to share his knowledge and love of Lincoln with new generations.
