  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.

Public Programs

  1. Law Day program: "Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society"

    May 1, 2019, 7:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day in 1958 as a day of national dedication to the principles of government under law. This observance reflects on the role of law in the foundation of the country and recognizes its importance for society. Law Day asks Americans to focus on every American’s rights as laid out in the fundamental documents of American democracy: the Declaration of Independence and the federal Constitution. The Eisenhower Presidential Library, in partnership with the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate of the 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley, will host a panel discussion, led by lawyers, academics, and a newspaper editor, of the 2019 Law Day theme—"Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society." Freedom of speech and the press are among the most important foundations for a free society. Join us to learn more about how law protects our liberty and how our legal system strives to achieve justice.
