Join your Education and Training Committee Hosts for a tour of Wilson’s retirement home, now a museum of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Also included in the tour is an exhibition honoring the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.  Contemporary Artist Helen Zughaib’s Syrian Migration Series explores the consequences of the post-World War I peace through the lens of the current Syrian conflict and the mass migration it has triggered. 

The 28th president was an inspiration to many future leaders, he won the Nobel Peace Prize, and he is an important figure in American Liberalism.  Failure to secure US ratification of the Treaty of Versailles and US lack of involvement in the League of Nations sowed the seeds of World War II.  Today with a broader knowledge of his views on race and civil liberties his legacy is hard to interpret.  The Woodrow Wilson House museum is adapting to these reactions.  We hope you come, learn and take away some tools for presenting sensitive political material to our city’s visitors. 

NOTE:  Registration fee is nonrefundable unless event is cancelled.

Education Committee:  Pat Abler and Chris Bauer

Training Committee:  Christen Eliason and  Sandra Moore
