Fingerprints are Forever

MU Student Finds Previously Unnoticed Presidential Thumbprint - Education News Story - WLWT Cincinnati: "OXFORD, Ohio -- A freshman at Miami University has discovered something rarely seen -- President Abraham Lincoln's fingerprint.

The university said that Lydia Smith, a first-year psychology major from Granville, Ohio, was transcribing a letter written by Lincoln on Oct. 5, 1863, for a class project when she noticed a smudge that she suspected could be the 16th president's thumbprint."
