The History of Lincoln Waites

Sources, Background, Insight and Inspiration


These books and documents have provided me with a great deal of background knowledge and information, as well as surprises, contradictions and reason for doubts. In compiling this site, I have not lifted great chunks of text from other people's work, in fact, quite the opposite. If you do see something here which you think might breach copyright, please tell me immediately - so that I can review (and if necessary, amend) the site content. Thank you.
