Description

A non-partisan group of prominent individuals who wished to continue and honor the pursuit of Wilson's ideals of peace and world harmony created the Woodrow Wilson Foundation in 1925. Hamilton Fish Armstrong had a strong commitment to the Foundation and held a range of positions from member of the Board of Trustees to president. The files for the Woodrow Wilson Foundation subseries include correspondence, awards, by-laws, financial statements, minutes, press releases, proposals, publications and reports of the librarian. The files within these categories are arranged chronologically from 1925 to 1968.

The correspondence deals with routine issues as well as special events. There is extensive correspondence dealing with the construction of the Woodrow Wilson Memorial at Geneva. Oversize blueprints and photographs of the Memorial have been relocated to the Woodrow Wilson Foundation records in the University Archives. Another large portion of the correspondence reflects the time and energy the Foundation put into honoring Wilson's Birthday.
