Short Biography of Woodrow Wilson

 Q:   Ask a Question about Short Biography of Woodrow Wilson       
Woodrow Thomas Wilson (1856-1924) was the 28th president of the USA 1913-1921, a Democrat. He kept the USA out of World War I until 1917, and in January 1918 issued his "Fourteen Points" as a basis for a just peace settlement.

At the peace conference in Paris he secured the inclusion of the League of Nations in individual peace treaties, but these were not ratified by Congress, so the USA did not join the League. Nobel Peace Prize in 1919.

Wilson, born in Virginia, became president of Princeton University in 1902. In 1910 he became governor of New Jersey. Elected president in 1912 against Theodore Roosevelt and Taft, he initiated anti-trust legislation and secured valuable social reforms in his progressive "New Freedom" programme.

He strove to keep the USA neutral during World War I but the German U-boat campaign forced him to declare war in 1917. In 1919 he suffered a stroke from which he never fully recovered.
