Lamon, Ward Hill (1828-93).

A Danville attorney and an associate of AL on the Eighth Circuit, Lamon was called by AL "my particular friend." He accompanied the president-elect to Washington, D.C., in 1861 and was appointed U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia. Though much criticized for his conduct, he was a trusted member of AL's inner circle. In 1872, together with Chauncey F. Black, Lamon published a controversial biography of AL based on research material collected by and purchased from WHH. (ALE; DAB)
