Arthur S. Link: August 8, 1920 - March 26, 1998 Arthur S. Link was born in New Market, Virginia, to a German Lutheran family. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he received a B.A. in 1941 and a Ph.D. in 1945. He was the leading specialist on Woodrow Wilson, with a five volume biography of Wilson (to the start of the First World War). In addition, he edited 69 volumes of Wilson's papers.
