About the Presenter

Mike Capps has been an interpreter with National Park Service for 27 years, 15 of them at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, where he is the Chief of Interpretation and Resource Management. During his tenure at Lincoln Boyhood, he has developed a keen interest in the park’s establishment and development over the years. Capps asserts that the park’s story represents an important period within the history of the preservation movement, when the creation of memorial edifices and landscapes was an important expression of the nation’s reverence for Abraham Lincoln. In addition to his responsibilities at Lincoln Boyhood, Capps has been a trainer for the NPS Fundamentals program, has numerous publications, and has served on the grant request rating panel for the Japanese American Confinement Sites program.
