Woodrow Wilson served as Governor of New Jersey and President of Princeton Universitybefore being elected President of the United States. He was President during the United States' participation in WWI, and he was one of the key architects of the Treaty of Versailles and the establishment of the League of Nations. After suffering a stroke late in his second term, he was unable to muster sufficient support in the Senate for for the Treaty of Versailles. The United States did not ratify the treaty and remained outside the League of Nations. For a fellow with so much to say about liberty and resistance, Wilson was slow to act upon the protests of American women, though he did eventually support the Nineteenth Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in August of 1920.
