Founded in 1949 by Czech and Slovak emigrants to the United States, the Wilsonian Club is an international society that perpetuates the memory and legacy of the Nobel laureate and twenty-eighth President of the United States—Woodrow Wilson. Members of the Wilsonian Club come from many nations and have different backgrounds. They all share a keen interest in the historical role of this monumental statesman and furthering the legacy of one of the greatest American presidents whose thoughts and deeds influenced millions in the United States and abroad

The Wilsonian Club, in cooperation with its sister organizations, is also planning a spring 2013 conference in Washington, DC, with the theme President Woodrow Wilson – Creator of the New Europe. To support the planning of this conference, the Wilsonian Club is looking for volunteers. Please write to wilsonianclub@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.
