  1. Eisenhower's Middle Road

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

    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.

  1. Ike Book TALK: "Mrs. Miniver" by Jan Struther

    March 10, 2020, 7:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    "Mrs. Miniver" Is a World War II novel written by Jan Struther in 1940. The book is a light yet intelligent read, set in England just before the outbreak of World War II. Mrs. Miniver is a delightfully down-to-earth woman with incredible insight. The book's origin was as a successful column the author wrote regularly for "The Times" in Britain, yet "Mrs. Miniver" topped the U.S. bestseller list in September 1940. The British government dispatched the author to America as a goodwill ambassador, where the book was made into a 1942 movie, starring Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon. Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) is presented by Humanities Kansas. Ike Book TALKS are free and open to the public. Books in the series can be checked out of the Abilene Public Library or purchased at the Eisenhower Presidential Library gift shop.
