Elizabeth Briscoe Wilson served as Lincoln University Library Director at Inman E. Page Library from 1988 to 2010; the longest tenure of that position in the history of the institution. Born in Salina, Kansas, Mrs. Wilson graduated from Lincoln University in 1965 and then earned a Masters in Library Science from Alabama A&M. After serving at schools worldwide, she returned to Lincoln as a reference librarian and became the Library Director in 1988. Elizabeth led the crusade to build a new library on the Lincoln campus to replace the original Page Library facility. The new modern building opened in 1997. Wilson was also instrumental in forming the Library Science minor program before her retirement. Mrs. Wilson now enjoys traveling with her husband Robert.
