Today we are happy to offer for sale an antique Woodrow Wilson campaign litho portrait pin! Thomas Woodrow Wilson (December 28, 1856 – February 3, 1924) was an American statesman and academic who served as the 28th president of the United States from 1913 to 1921. A member of the Democratic Party, Wilson served as the president of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and as governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913, before winning the 1912 presidential election. As president, he oversaw the passage of progressive legislative policies unparalleled until the New Deal in 1933. He also led the United States during World War I, establishing an activist foreign policy known as “Wilsonianism.” He was one of the three key leaders at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, where he championed a new League of Nations, but he was unable to win Senate approval for U.S. participation in the League. This very unusual 3-1/2″ round litho with pin on back features a stately head shot portrait of Woodrow Wilson. The pin dates from the presidential election of 1912. The piece presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minor wear and scuffing commensurate with age. This rare and hard-to-find campaign button will make an outstanding addition to any antique American political memorabilia collection. Fresh to the market!
