28th US President. Wilson began his career as a lawyer and was later a professor of political economy at Wesleyan University and then Princeton. He was elected president in 1912 and served until 1921. A democrat, Wilson was a strong advocate of anti-trust laws and voting rights for women. He first defended the position of neutrality in the First World War (WWi), but later was forced to declare war on Germany. He is best known for his "Fourteen Points" and for his advocacy of the League of Nations.

Wilson’s sarcophagus is located inside the Washington National Cathedral, Washington, DC. He is the only President whose remains lay inside a church, in this case, the National Church of the United States. He is the only President laid to rest in Washington, D.C.

Wilson’s wife, Edith (1872-1961), is buried under the cathedral floor, next to her husband’s sarcophagus.
