Woolly Wilson

Museum Mascot


Woolly Wilson rejoined our staff in March 2019 after spending some time away on adventures learning how to become a better museum mascot. He represents the original 18 sheep Woodrow Wilson had on the White House Lawn from 1918-1920 for propaganda purposes at the end of World War I. In addition to being a mascot, Woolly is also a social media manager, where he is active on Twitter and Instagram. Woolly’s goal is to educate the virtual public about items in our collection, fun events at and away from the museum, and being the voice for the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum in the coolest way possible.
