First broadcast in 1959 by NBC, Meet Mr. Lincoln is an educational film introducing people to the Greatest Of All Time, Abraham Lincoln. The Internet Archives is a treasure trove of antique publications and film. Take a look at Meet Mr. Lincoln by clicking this link:

That was interesting, thanks for sharing.
I agree with you, Internet Archives is a treasure trove.

At the bottom of the page Thomas linked to is a book of the same title as the video, with most of the same photos and illustrations in the video.

It says it was first broadcast on the eve of Lincoln's 150th birthday!

I remember viewing "Meet Mr. Lincoln" when it was first aired. The narrator is Alexander Scourby who was also the narrator for "Victory at Sea."
