History to the present day
Lincoln College was founded in 1427 by Richard Fleming, the Bishop of Lincoln. Lincoln's architecture is medieval stone and, unlike other Colleges, there is no modern annexe to distract from the 15th-century atmosphere. The library is located in the All Saints Church, an 18th-century church given to Lincoln in 1971. The Church tower gives a notable contribution to Oxford's skyline of Dreaming Spires. Lincoln was among the first of Oxford's Colleges to admit women students in the late 1970s. Lincoln's most distinguished Fellow was John Wesley, a Methodist reformer appointed in 1726. Other notable alumni include Edward Thomas, John Radcliffe, Lord Florey, John Le Carre and Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss).
