Woodrow Wilson, c. 1929-1931
Borglum collection, Stamford Museum & Nature Center
Gift of Mary Ellis Borglum Vhay (92.3.12)
While working on the massive presidential heads of Mount Rushmore, Borglum was asked to create a public monument of Woodrow Wilson for the Polish city of Poznan. Wilson was not one of Borglum's favorite presidents, perhaps because he did not respond well to Borglum's volunteered advice on how to manage the aeronautics industry during the First World War.
