Eisenhower's Middle Road

Monday, October 14, 2019

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s leadership style as president reflected his practical, level-headed Midwestern roots: Work from the middle to accomplish what those on the extremes saw as impossible. The exhibit Eisenhower’s Middle Road spotlights a prescription for peace and prosperity that guided Ike throughout his eight years in the White House. He sought balance for America – the pursuit and preservation of social gains, for instance, while refraining from government overreach. This exhibit explores six key areas reflecting that approach. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home provided content and design. Work/research was funded by a grant to the Eisenhower Foundation from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Missouri.
