             Biographical note 
             "William H. Townsend was a renowned scholar, raconteur, and lawyer, born in Anderson Company. Educated first in an one room school at Glensboro, he graduated from University of Kentucky Law School in 1912. Among his books was 
                 Lincoln and the Bluegrass  was published in 1955. His talk on Cassius Clay, 
                 The Lion of White Hall , is now a taped classic. Townsend had the largest private collection of Lincolnania in the United States. Recognized as a leading expert on Abraham Lincoln, Townsend was a founder of the Kentucky Civil War Round Table in 1953. He served as its first president until his death. He was named posthumously to Fayette County Bar's Hall of Fame in 1966."
