Woodrow Wilson: From Isolation to WWI

As a president, Woodrow Wilson isn’t in the top five that all school kids know, but his impression on this country is, nonetheless, a lasting one. 

On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with biographer A. Scott Berg about the man who tried isolationism but ultimately had to lead the nation into a world war.


  • A. Scott Berg is the author of Wilson, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius, Goldwyn: A Biography, Kate Remembered andLindbergh. He has received the National Book Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Pulitzer Prize.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
