Woodrow Wilson


American politician who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913-1921. He was deeply involved in the post-war Paris Peace Conference when he collapsed in September 1919. With the aid of his wife, he was able to conduct business from his bedside until his retirement in 1921.

The son of a Presbyterian minister, he studied at Princeton and Johns Hopkins, gaining his Ph.D. with the first of his major books on American government, "Congressional Government," 1885. After teaching at Bryn Mawr and Wesleyan, 1885-90, he moved to Princeton where he became president in 1902 and where his reforms had a wide impact on American university education. In 1910, Wilson entered politics as a Democrat and was elected governor of New Jersey, 1911-13; his liberal reforms brought him national attention and the Democratic presidential nomination in 1912 (although only on the 46th ballot).

Wilson married his second wife, Edith Galt in 1915.

With the Republicans split between Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, Wilson won by a landslide. He effectively continued a reformist program he called the "New Freedom." His initiatives included lowering tariffs, a graduated income tax, the Federal Reserve Act, the Federal Trade Commission, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the eight-hour workday, and landmark laws against child labor. On the international front he was less successful, especially in his attempts to intervene in Mexican politics. He won reelection in 1916 with a pledge to keep America out of the European war, but found the U.S. inexorably drawn in. Declaring war on Germany in April 1917, he proposed a peace in the form of the "Fourteen Points," which brought Germany to the bargaining table in late 1918.

Much of the world now hailed him as virtually a savior, but at the Versailles Peace Conference he was confronted by the compromises of Realpolitik. On his return to America his dream of a League of Nations - largely due to his refusal to compromise - went down to defeat in Congress as his health collapsed. He spent his last months in office incapacitated while Edith Galt Wilson served as his intermediary for many decisions and in 1921, retired to seclusion. Undeniably one of the most intelligent and high-minded presidents the U.S. has had, he was also rigid in certain ways and unresolved in others so that when it came to the climax of his life's work - America's entry into a League of Nations - he was unable to make the appropriate moves. He died at 11:15 AM on 3 February 1924 in Washington, D.C., of a stroke and other heart-related problems at age 67.

Source Notes

Arthur Blackwell quotes "Woodrow Wilson, a Profile." Blackwell writes, "The Bible entry by his minister father was apparently in terms of the astronomical day (noon to noon) though why this occurred is baffling. The entry, which I've seen, gives 'December 28 at 12 3/4 at night.' Arthur Link, Editor-in-Chief of Wilson's papers published by Princeton, corrects his own December 28 citation with the comment, 'It has been discovered that Wilson almost certainly was born at 00:45 AM on December 29, 1856.'"

(Formerly, "Horoscopes of U.S. Presidents" by D.C. Doane gave December 28, 1856, 11:45 PM LMT. In "Astrology and the Occult Sciences," Ralph Kraum stated that Wilson told Weston that he was born 'about 20 minutes before midnight," which Kraum rectified to 11:42 PM. Wynn 5/1935 gave "between 11:30 PM and Midnight, from him personally to Pritchard while he was campaigning for President.")

Sy Scholfield quotes a note from his mother on his 21st birthday transcribed in "The papers of Woodrow Wilson, Volume 1" by Arthur Stanley Link, Woodrow Wilson Foundation (Princeton University Press, 1966), p. 332: "This latter entry (readily found, since the documents are reprinted in chronological order) the reader finds to be a letter to Wilson from his mother, who writes: 'Just to think, dearest child, that you are twenty one years old. You know you were born about midnight of the 28th but we do not know whether it was a little after midnight or before. Well, my darling— you have never been anything but a comfort & blessing to me all your life. Are you glad to know that?'"

Scholfield quotes time of death from The New York Times Book of the Dead: Obituaries of Extraordinary People by William McDonald (Hachette UK, 2016): "February 3, 1924. Washington ... He died at 11:15 o'clock this morning, after being unconscious for nearly twelve hours."
