From 1913-1921, Woodrow Wilson was the American President, meaning he was one of the most powerful men in the world during one of the most significant periods in history. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries Archives & Special Collections is home to a variety of materials related to President Wilson, his leadership during World War I, and his involvement at the Paris Peace Conference.

This exhibit includes documents, items, and images from a number of different collections at the University of Nebraska and includes cartoons, books, postcards, posters, and photographs, along with a few miscellaneous items, all representative of President Wilson. Some of the items date back to Wilson's schooling at Princeton, while the majority relate to his presidency, and more specifically, his involvement in World War I and the following Peace Conference at Paris in 1919. Also included is a bibliography of materials related to Woodrow Wilson which are also available in the Archives & Special Collections.

Through the variety of materials presented here, this project will make available a number of items housed in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries Archives & Special Collections in order to provide better insight into the life and presidency of Woodrow Wilson, as well as some of the issues which were prevalent during this time.
