"Woodrovr Wilson, twenty-seventh |
president of the United States, and
I eighth chief executive from Virginia,
was fifty-nine years old December 28
of last year. The little town of Staunton,
in the state which has been the
mother of more presidents than any
other, has the honor of having been his
"Whether history will hold Mr. "Wilson
to have been one of our greatest
Jjkb presidents only posterity may know.
Americans today are too close to the
events of his administration to give i
an impartial opinion. It. is safe to say.
however, that among his important
works as a statesman so far have
been: First, his conquest of .New Jersey
bosses wben governor of that
state; second, the present tariff law: !
third, the federal reserve bank act, and
fourth, the diplomatic negotiations
growing out of the European, war.
A Sonthemer.
Although Mr. "Wilson is a southerner
born and bred, he has spent most
of his active career in the North. His
grandfather was James Wilson, a
Scotchman, who settled in Philadelphia.
Mr. Wilson's ancestra is almost
entirely Scotch and Scotch-Irish.
James Wilson left Philadelphia for
ISteubenville, O., where he established
a newspaper and practiced law.
Here the president's father, Joseph
R. Wilson; was born. Later he moved
to Staunton. He married Jessie Woodrow.
The future president's parents
moved to Georgia when the boy was
about two years old, and there his
youthful eyes saw something of the
troubled events of the Civil war.
After the war the family moyed to
South Carolina, where Woodrow spent
a year in Davidson college. He remained
at home the next year and in
1875 entered Princeton university.
Here he proved a splendid student.
His specialties were political economy,
history and debating. He sprang into
notice on one occasion when chosen
in the preliminary contest to represent
his college in debate against a rival.
Young Wilson was jubilant until he
saw the subject was "Protection versus j
Free Trade." The Princetonians were
to uphold protection. As Wilson was
an ardent free trader, he refused to
compete, a brave act, because he gave
I up the chance of whining a coveted
prize and because oniis attitude made
him unpopular with some of the students.
Wrote Articles.
He also drew notice when a student
in Princeton by an article in the
"International Review" in which he
condemned the secret committee practices
of Congress.
Among his; classmates yrb$n he was
graduated, in 187p. where Mahlon C.
- Pitney, later Associate Justice of the
United States Supreme court, and William
F. McCombs, who managed Wilson's
first contest for the presidency
and was defeated for election to the
United States Senate from New York
state this year.
. , :In,-1880. Wilson entered -ther University
of Virginia to study law. He also
debated and sang at the Glee Club.

After two years liere. "Wilson was
admitted to "The "bar and with another
young man started the' law Arm of
Renlck and Wilson in Atlanta, Ga.
Business does not seem to have been
brisk for in the next year. 1888. Wilson
entered Johns Hopkins University
at Baltimore to study history and political
economy and obtain the degree,
of doctor of philosophy. At Johns
Hopkins he also published his first
book. "Congressional Government," an
elaboration of his Princeton essay
mentioned above. On June 24. 188a.
he married Miss Ellen Louise Axson,
of Savannah, Ga.
Now came three years as instructor
at Bryn Mawr and then two years at
Wesley an University in Middletown.
Conn. While at Wesleyan he published
his second book. "Tho State." and also
delivered occasional lectures at Johns
In the fall of 1890 he began his long
association with Princeton UniversityHe
entered the faculty to take a chair
of jurisprudence and politics, and in
1902 was elected president. In his
early years at Princeton lie completed
his greatest work, "History of the
American People."
College President.
As president of Princeton he was
a national figure and constantly in
the public prints. He fought the aristocratic
traditions of the university
with much energy. He totally changed
the social life of the students, introducing
many ideas taken from the
great British universities.
Certain ^Cew Jersey political bosses
thought he would be a useful man as
governor. Mr. Wilson did not seek
the nomination, but when the Democratic
convention chose him, he declared
it his duty to accept.
rr? l ~ ? :
I nc provcu ct. nauiy uaiiijj Miguel.
The bosses who had picked him as
their candidate smiled when he told
the people that if elected he would
consider himself the leader of the
state's Democracy. They thought lie
did not mean it. But Mr. Wilson had
not long been governor when they
found out their mistake. To their surprise,
the ex-college president proved
somewhat., of, fa radjgal, condemning
the state's "legislature and refusing to
mind the bosses.
He espoused the initiative and referendum,
stating that tie views he. had
held against these innovations while
lecturer at Ptinceton had been mistaken.
The result of Wilson's term as governor
(1911-1913) was a series of antimonopoly
law, called the "Seven sisters,"
a primary election law, corruptpractice
act, employers' liability act,
public .utilities act, municipal commission
government act and sterilization
Mr. McCombs appears to have been
the "original Wilson man." He was
sure he' saw in the energetic governor
"presidential timber." He began to
line up his friends and came to the
Baltimore Democratic convention of
1912 with a few pledged delegates.
That convention developed into a"
protracted struggle. Champ Clark had
