President Wilson Greets a Woman on Speaking Tour

Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Archives yesterday joined the Commons group of museums, archives, and libraries on Flickr.

The Woodrow Wilson Library brings to its Commons inauguration over 600 photographs covering Wilson’s academic and political careers and his family life. History students might head first to the World War I collection, which includes sets of photographs from the Treaty of Versailles and League of Nations negotiations. More interested in the people surrounding and supporting the presidency? You might start with the Wilson family, or with Wilson’s Cabinet. Either way, join us in welcoming the Woodrow Wilson Library Archives to the Commons!
