  2. "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.
