Gerald C. (Gerry) Lincoln was one of the founders of the Heritage Front along with Wolfgang Droege, Grant Bristow[1] and James Scott Dawson. Lincoln was editor of Up Front, the group's official magazine,[2] designed the groups logo and also acted as one of its spokespersons.[2]

In 1989, Lincoln traveled with Droege and other members of the Nationalist Party of Canada to Libya on the invitation of Muammar al-Gaddafi to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Libyan regime.[3] It was on that trip that several members of the Nationalist Party, disaffected by the leadership of Don Andrews, decided to found the Heritage Front.[4]

In recent years, Lincoln has ceased his political activities.
