Biographical and Professional Information

Allen Carl Guelzo earned an MA and PhD in history from the University of Pennsylvania. He is the Henry R. Luce III Professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College, where he serves as Director of the Civil War Era Studies Program. He began work in 1996 on an 'intellectual biography' of Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President, which won the Lincoln Prize for 2000 and the 2000 Book Prize of the Abraham Lincoln Institute.
