Excerpt

The publication of the pictorial record of Woodrow Wilson's life at this time seems to be most appropriate. The war is nearing its climax and there can be no question that victory will be ours. We then shall be confronted with the problems of arriving at a just peace and a postwar international security.

In this connection all nations and individuals will benefit by a study of the part Woodrow Wilson played in the adjustments following the last war. While I was in the United States Senate at the time and frequently did not agree with President Wilson's unyielding viewpoints, nevertheless I was mindful always of his sincere desire to improve world conditions and to bring about a lasting peace.

Woodrow Wilson went to the White House from the Governorship of New Jersey, and his portrait occupies a place of honor in the office in which I am again serving as Chief Executive. I served in the State Senate while Woodrow Wilson was Governor, and in the United States Senate while he was President. Although we were of opposite political parties, I always admired his lofty aims and his penetrating mind. Woodrow Wilson left an imprint on political history which I am certain will never be effaced. Glancing through the many intimate photographs of Woodrow Wilson in this volume I recall many enjoyable memories of him both in state and national affairs.
