Illinois Connection

Schroeder-Lein moved to Springfield in 2001 where she worked as an assistant editor for the Papers of Abraham Lincoln for two years, and have been Manuscripts Librarian for the non-Lincoln manuscripts at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library since 2005. Two of her books plus the volume she edited, Treasures of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, were written entirely in Illinois. Of Course, Lincoln and Medicine has a substantial Illinois segment.
