Article

Thomas Woodrow Wilson served two terms as the twenty-eighth President of the United States (1913–1921) and is remembered for leading the nation through World War I. Wilson graduated from Princeton University in 1879 and briefly attended the University of Virginia Law School before earning his doctorate from the Johns Hopkins University in 1886. After an early career in academia, Wilson later became president of Princeton University (1902–1910) and served one term as governor of New Jersey (1911–1913). In the presidential election of 1912, Wilson was elected along with running mate Thomas R. Marshall on a Democratic platform that stressed individualism and states’ rights.
