Lena Adaline Lincoln was born on July 15, 1899 in Van Buren, Arkansas.

Adaline Lincoln, a second cousin once removed of Abraham Lincoln, graduated from high school at the age of thirteen, and from the University of Arkansas in 1916. In the fall of that year Lincoln entered the University of Chicago. She received an A.M. in Latin in the summer of 1917 with a thesis titled "Development of Allegorical Interpretation in the Ecologues of Virgil." In 1923 Lincoln passed her final examination in Romance Languages as a minor for a Ph.D but received no further degrees.
