Edwin B. Coddington (1905-1967) was the longtime chair of Lafayette College’s history department and a noted Civil War historian. Coddington became ill almost immediately after his election as PHA president in October 1966, and Cutler Andrews continued to function as president until Coddington’s resignation and replacement in August 1967. Coddington died two months later in October. His most important work, The Battle of Gettysburg: A Study in Command, was published posthumously in 1968.
