Bennett Martin Library, Lincoln, NE


Bennett S. "Abe" Martin was a leading business, civic, and political figure in Lincoln for many years. He served as Lincoln's mayor from 1956 to 1959 after a term on the city council. Martin and his wife, Dorothy Bridgmon Martin, were noted for their many philanthropies, including the endowment that allowed construction of the library that bears the family name. [Thanks to]
