Carl Sandburg

American writer Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) was the winner of two Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry and a third for his six-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln.  During his lifetime he was regarded as a major figure in American contemporary literature.  When Sandburg died in 1967, then-President Lyndon Johnson stated, “Carl Sandburg was more than the voice of America, more than the poet of its strength and genius. He was America.”
