Lot 1913 - 1921 Clippings President Woodrow Wilson With Photos Political Cartoon:
A little history lesson first, courtesy of Wikipedia ...
Thomas Woodrow Wilson was an American statesman and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. A member of the Democratic Party, Wilson served as the President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and as Governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913, before winning the 1912 presidential election. As president, he oversaw the passage of progressive legislative policies unparalleled until the New Deal in 1933. He also led the United States during World War I, establishing an activist foreign policy known as "Wilsonianism." He was one of the three key leaders at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, where he championed a new League of Nations, but he was unable to win Senate approval for U.S. participation in the League.
And now on to this listing ...

If you are a collector of Woodrow Wilson memorabilia, this is a must-have for your collection!
These clippings are in delicate condition, but can still be handled without crumbling.
Many of the newspaper articles in the scrapbook had been cut up to fit within the space of the pages. I have carefully separated the clippings from the pages, and reassembled them (much like a jigsaw puzzle) just as they appeared when they were printed in the paper. They are held together on the back by archival-quality mending tissue. It contains no acid or lignin, and will not harm the paper over time. This is NOT Scotch tape! It should not be removed.
ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES.
