This study represents the first scholarly biography of this self-effacing man so long overshadowed by Lincoln.

Drawing on extensive research in the Nicolay Papers, Allen Carden and Thomas Ebert trace Nicolay's childhood arrival in America from Germany to his involvement in journalism and state government in Illinois. Acquainted with Lincoln in Springfield, Nicolay became a trusted assistant selected by Lincoln to be his private secretary. Intensely devoted to the president, he kept the White House running smoothly and allowed Lincoln to focus on the top priorities.

After Lincoln's death, Nicolay's greatest achievement was his co-authorship, with his White House assistant, John Hay, of the first thoroughly documented account of Lincoln's life and administration, a work still consulted by historians.
