Highlights of the collection include images of Wilson’s Presidential campaigns in 1912, his World War I leadership, The Paris Peace Conference in 1919, and fascinating portraits of the President alongside world leaders and with his family.

It’s 99 years since Wilson was elected 28th President of the United States in 1912 – we’re glad to play a part in getting these images back into the spotlight for you to enjoy.

The Commons exists to help reveal the hidden treasures in the world’s public photography archives and to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer. You’re invited to help describe the photographs you discover here, either by adding tags or leaving comments.

Pssssst. If you’re an institution interested in participating in The Commons, you’ll be happy to know we’ve reopened for business.
