On October 15 at 5:30 p.m., A. Scott Berg will deliver the J. Harvie Wilkinson, Jr., Lecture entitled "Woodrow Wilson-Across Three Centuries."

One hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, and one of the most enigmatic. A. Scott Berg will speak about his newest biography, Wilson, the most personal and penetrating study about not only Wilson the icon but also Wilson the man.

This is a book at once magisterial and deeply emotional about the whole of Wilson’s life, accomplishments, and failings. This is not just Wilson the icon—but Wilson the man.
