  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.

    March 26, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    This event has been CANCELLED. 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. For more information, go to https://www.archives.gov/coronavirus. Chautauqua was a movement that focused on moral education and self-improvement through programs on reform, religion, and culture, providing a space for women to discuss important issues of the day. By the 1890s, women had succeeded in making it a space that promoted woman suffrage. The Ottawa, Kansas, Chautauqua was one of these significant spaces that supported discussions of women's rights. This presentation will examine how women used the Chautauqua platform to engage in political activism, particularly suffrage and temperance, and how this early movement laid the groundwork for contemporary issues of feminism and gender equality.
