Exhibits

  1. Eisenhower's Middle Road

    October 14, 2019, 9:00 AM - March 31, 2020, 4:45 PM @ Library 2nd Floor Gallery

    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. We extend special appreciation to the David Woods Kemper Foundation, presenting sponsor of this exhibit.
