Eisenhower's Middle Road

Monday, October 14, 2019

Notice: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Effective Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. CDT, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is closed to the public until further notice. Exhibit summary: Dwight D. Eisenhower’s leadership style as President reflected his Midwestern roots: Work from the middle to accomplish what those on the extremes saw as impossible. This exhibit spotlights a prescription for peace and prosperity that guided Ike throughout his eight years in the White House. He sought balance for America 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. We extend special appreciation to the David Woods Kemper Foundation, presenting sponsor of this exhibit.
