Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926) was the first-born son of President Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd Lincoln. He graduated from Harvard College in 1864 and after that fought in the Civil War. A year later President Lincoln was assassinated. In 1914, nearly all of the 36 living members of the class of 1864 attended a reunion in Phillips Brooks House at Harvard. In 1864, 39 men completed their four years, and 44 more were associated with the class for a part of that time. "The large number of men who did not graduate is accounted for by the fact that many of them went to war." Of the class, 41 fought in the Civil War-- 35 in the Union Army and six in the Confederate Army. Of the 99 graduates, almost every one took a further degree than the A.B. -- Harvard Crimson article, 6/18/1914. Robert Todd Lincoln went on after the war to study law.

This is the Class of 1864 50th Anniversary book from Harvard College, 1914. This book offers a two-page biography of Robert Todd Lincoln as well as listing his wife, Mary Harlan, and three children: Mary, Abraham and Jessie. Although Lincoln was present at the class's 1904 reunion, he did not attend the one in 1914. The book includes much information about the class as a whole, including the class song and members' current addresses. Lincoln's address is listed as N Street, Washington, D.C.
