Biographical History

Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) was the 28th President of the United States, serving two terms from 1913-1921. Among other achievements his administration passed the Federal Reserve Act creating a central banking system (1913), the Clayton Antitrust Act (1914), and the Revenue Act of 1913 which introduced the first progressive income tax.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Woodrow Wilson Collection contains correspondence to and from Wilson, and a set of reproductions of material used in an exhibit (photographs, letters, typescripts, addresses to Congress, etc). The date and venue of exhibit are unknown, but internal evidence suggests it was in 1956, the centennial of his birth.

Arrangement of the Collection

Correspondence is arranged chronologically. Exhibit material is arranged by the exhibit numbers appearing in the material itself.
