Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The Woodrow Wilson Additional Materials have been maintained in the order that they were acquired except for oversize materials, which are in Box 2 and Cabinet 6, Drawer 4. Materials are added to the end of this collection as they are accessioned.

Collection History




As documents deemed appropriate for inclusion in the Woodrow Wilson Additional Materials are accessioned by the Mudd Manuscript Library, they are added to the collection and finding aid.


A copy of Wilson's "Princeton for the Nation's Service" speech and some materials related to the 2002 exhibition on Wilson at Princeton University Library were removed from accession ML.2016.012 because they duplicated materials found in other Mudd Library collections.

Materials from accession ML.2016.012 related to Jessie Wilson Sayre were separated and added to the Jessie Wilson Sayre Collection.
