Woodrow Wilson served as president of Princeton University (1902-1911), Governor
of New Jersey (1911-1913), and twenty-eighth president of the United States
(1913-1921); this series includes letters written from all three offices. The
letters particularly highlight his involvement in publishing and reviewing written
works on political science and history. Of note are nearly thirty letters written
to illustrator Howard Pyle, which demonstrate Wilson's passion for history and
desire to be as historically accurate as possible in the text and illustrations of
his own works.
