Historical discovery

The campus continues to buzz with excitement after the discovery of a historical document signed by Abraham Lincoln. This photo courtesy of the Williamsport Sun-Gazette shows retiring Lycoming College President Dr. James Douthat displaying the framed document that he discovered while cleaning his office. Lincoln signed the certificate in 1863 to appoint Benjamin Crever, Lycoming's founder, as a Civil War chaplain.
