Exhibits

  1. "Eisenhower's Middle Road" Exhibit at Central Kansas City Public Library

    January 23, 2019, 9:00 AM - May 24, 2019, 5:00 PM @ Central Kansas City Public Library

    Dwight D. Eisenhower’s leadership style as president reflected his practical, level-headed Midwestern roots: Work from the middle to accomplish what those on the extremes saw as impossible. The exhibit, "Eisenhower’s Middle Road," spotlights a prescription for peace and prosperity that guided Ike throughout his eight years in the White House. He sought balance for America—the pursuit and preservation of social gains, for instance, while refraining from government overreach. The exhibit in the Central Kansas City Public Library’s Rocky and Gabriella Mountain Gallery explores six key areas reflecting that approach. The exhibit was produced by the archival and curatorial staff of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene, Kansas, and is presented in partnership with the Central Kansas City Public Library. This exhibit is funded by a grant to the Eisenhower Foundation from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Missouri.

  1. "The Age of Eisenhower" with William I. Hitchcock, at Central Kansas City Public Library

    January 23, 2019, 6:00 PM @ Central Kansas City Public Library

    Dwight D. Eisenhower’s rivals painted him as old and boring, and the quiet, steady nature of the Kansas war hero turned commander-in-chief did little to rebut that. But from ending the Korean War to facing off with the Soviets, confronting McCarthyism to advancing civil rights, Ike’s achievements and influence in the White House were far-reaching. Today's historians give him his due, ranking him in a 2017 survey as America’s fifth-greatest president. University of Virginia historian William I. Hitchcock examines that legacy in a discussion of his book "The Age of Eisenhower: America and the World in the 1950s." This program launches a series of events coinciding with the exhibit "Eisenhower’s Middle Road" at the Central Kansas City Public Library. All are made possible by a grant to the Eisenhower Foundation from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Missouri. See "More Details" to RSVP.
