Biography | show moreshow less
Wilson (1856-1924) taught and wrote about American politics, beginning with Congressional Government (1885), before becoming President of Princeton University (1902-1910). Elected Governor of New Jersey (1911-1913), he broke with the conservatives who had promoted his candidacy and governed as a reformist and opponent of machine politics. In a 3-way contest for the Presidency in 1912, he won only 42 percent of the vote but was elected because President Taft, the Republican nominee, and former President Theodore Roosevelt, running under the banner of the Progressive Party, divided the remaining votes. During his first Presidential term, Wilson pursued a progressive domestic agenda, which included establishment of the Federal Reserve system, the Federal Trade Commission, and prohibitions of child labor. Narrowly re-elected in 1916 on the slogan "He kept us out of war", Wilson proved unable to avoid American involvement in World War I. Ultimately convinced that the U. S. could not remain neutral, Wilson sought to turn a traditional conflict among great powers into a crusade to "make the world safe for Democracy". Although his efforts to promote a new kind of international system embodying his "14 Points" and a League of Nations earned him the Nobel Peace Prize (1919), they were resisted by other foreign powers at the Versailles peace Conference, and the U. S. Congress rejected U. S. participation in the League.
