STAUNTON, VA.- Considered by many to be one of the most influential and successful Presidents in United States history, Woodrow Wilson’s achievements and leadership qualities have been well documented and noted by historians and political scientists for generations. But, where are his original notes & documents? And how can they be accessed? Spread across the United States, spanning several states, numerous libraries, living rooms and private homes; lay the documents and papers of President Woodrow Wilson. These documents are a collection of works, ranging from personal correspondence with his wife and daughters to official Presidential papers.
Founded in 2004, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Foundation (WWPL) seeks to preserve this president’s collections and materials by embarking on a digitization project, The Woodrow Wilson Project, which would gather these documents in one place, memorialize them and make them accessible to all who wish to have access to them.
The Papers of Woodrow Wilson Digital Edition will be accomplished in two phases. All of the documents will be housed in one place, at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library’s digital library, which is open to the public. For more information or to learn how the general public can help with the Woodrow Wilson Project contact Elizabeth Shortt, WWPL Head Archivist, at email@example.com , or visit http://www.woodrowwilsonproject.org/.
