42. Woodrow Wilson Inauguration

 

Princeton undergraduates were given the honor of escorting President-elect Woodrow Wilson ’1879 from Princeton to Washington for his inauguration.  Traveling in two trains, the students were on hand to visit Wilson in the White House on the day he took office, as commemorated by this postcard.  Princeton students again visited the White House in December 1913, after Wilson attended the Triangle show, The Pursuit of Priscilla, at its Washington tour stop.
