Joe Friedl ‘62 recently published a book titled “West Virginia – Lincoln’s Free State”. The book covers President Abraham Lincoln’s connections to the Mountain State and impacts of the Civil War on West Virginia. Mr. Friedl, who graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics, says “In all honesty, the instruction and experience I received at Concord in writing and speaking has helped me more than anything else throughout my career.” He lives in Vienna, VA with his wife Betty, who graduated from CU with a degree in Library Science. If you’re interested in obtaining a copy of Mr. Friedl’s book, it is currently available at the Tamarack and other West Virginia Visitors Centers.
