Theodore Roosevelt, often referred to as Teddy or TR, was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States, from 1901 to 1909. A leader of the Republican Party, he was a leading force of the Progressive Era. Born a sickly child with debilitating asthma, Roosevelt embraced a strenuous lifestyle and successfully regained his health.

He integrated his exuberant personality, vast range of interests, and world-famous achievements into a "cowboy" persona defined by robust masculinity. His first of many books, The Naval War of 1812, established his reputation as both a learned historian and a popular writer. He entered politics, becoming the leader of the reform faction of Republicans in NY's state legislature.

Following the deaths of his wife and mother, he escaped to the wilderness and operated a cattle ranch in the Dakotas. He returned to run unsuccessfully for Mayor of NYC in 1886. He served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy under William McKinley, resigning after 1 year to serve with the Rough Riders, gaining national fame for courage during the War in Cuba.

Once the United States entered the war in 1917, all 4 of Roosevelt’s sons volunteered to fight; his beloved youngest son, Quentin, was shot down and killed while flying a mission over Germany. Politically and physically active until the end, Roosevelt died in his sleep on January 6, 1919, at his family home in Oyster Bay, NY, at the age of 60.

William Howard Taft worked as a judge in OH Superior Court and in the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals before accepting a post as the first civilian governor of the Philippines in 1900. In 1904, Taft became secretary of war in the Theodore Roosevelt administration.

Taft lacked the expansive view of presidential power that Roosevelt had and was a more successful administrator than politician. By 1912, Roosevelt, dissatisfied with Taft’s presidency, had formed his own Progressive Party, splitting Republican voters and handing the White House to the Democrat Woodrow Wilson.

William Howard Taft was an American jurist and statesman who served as both the 27th President of the United States and later the 10th Chief Justice of the United States. A leader during the Progressive Era, Taft and his conservative allies took control of the Republican Party away from Theodore Roosevelt and the liberals.

He is the only person to have presided over both the executive and judicial branches of the United States federal government.

Thomas Woodrow Wilson was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Wilson earned a PhD in political science, working as a professor and scholar at various institutions before being chosen as President of Princeton University, 1902 to 1910.

As president, he led America through World War I and crafted the Versailles Treaty's "Fourteen Points," the last of which was creating a League of Nations to ensure world peace. Wilson also created the Federal Reserve and supported the 19th Amendment, allowing women to vote.

Wilson was driven by a sense of mission and an ideal his father had instilled in him, to leave the world a better place than you found it. His legacy of peace, social and financial reform, and statesmanship with integrity lives on at the many schools and programs named after him, most notably the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and his old alma mater, Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
