Governor Woodrow Wilson / President Woodrow Wilson specific research requeset.
I am a history researcher looking for ANY help to try and confirm three possible dates for when Woodrow Wilson was in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Below are references in the local newspapers, but they don't align to history very well. Can anyone steer me to where I might find official documentation?
1911 – New Jersey Governor Woodrow Wilson visits the area on Friday, October 27, 1911, later President of the United States, stopped by during a campaign swing and spoke from the old steps. There is a mention of the visit dated 1916 but we’re still looking for verification. We have confirmed the 1911 visit though he did win the Presidency in 1913. (Event also may have been October 20, 1911).
1916 – Bedminster Inn – Woodrow Wilson speaks on the porch making the inn a stop on his 1916 re-election campaign tour. (Still looking for affirmation on this event).
If you have not already done so, I suggest you check the Papers of Woodrow Wilson, which have been published. See https://www.archives.gov/nhprc/projects/catalog/woodrow-wilson
