Woodrow Wilson (1856 – 1924)
Woodrow Wilson was the 28th President of the United states from 1913 – 1921. In January 1918 President Wilson went before congress to present his 14-point speech, which represented a blueprint for future world peace. Wilson played an important role in the creation of the League, so far as he formulated an outline of the Covenant, however the United States congress rejected the idea of the League and consequently weakened its character.
