    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 (FIlm): "Mrs. Miniver"

    March 8, 2020, 2:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    "Mrs. Miniver" is a 1942 American romantic war drama starring Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon. Inspired by the 1940 novel, "Mrs. Miniver," by Jan Struther about a British wife and mother whose courage holds her family together through the terror of the World War II German Blitz. This film, lauded by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, captures the hopes of England and America at a time when defeat by Nazi Germany seems imminent. The film went into pre-production in the autumn of 1940, when the United States was still a neutral country. A scene initially filmed before the December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor was filmed again to reflect the tough, new spirit of a nation at war. The film won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (William Wyler), Best Actress (Greer Garson), and Best Supporting Actress (Teresa Wright). It was the first film with a plot line centered on World War II to win an Oscar for Best Picture. This film is free and open to the public.
