About the Books
Other Medical Theories
Over the years, physicians (and unwise non-physicians) have proposed so many medical theories for Abraham Lincoln that it's now difficult to keep track of them. The Physical Lincoln Complete (PLC) is the complete source for reviews of these theories. For readers wanting a smaller book, The Physical Lincoln (TPL) discusses selected theories. The table below lists several current and past medical theories for Lincoln, along with the books's opinion of whether Lincoln had each condition or not. The table's third column tells which book(s) discuss each condition.
