Woodrow Wilson & the Paris Peace Conference 1919. World War I drew to a close with the armistice of November 11, 1918, but the war’s official end would not come until June 28, 1919 with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in Paris. The treaty and the complex negotiations that led to it would prove to pose new problems and issues faced by the postwar world. President Woodrow Wilson has long been judged critically for his role in the negotiations. Biographer Patricia O’Toole will examine the complex challenges Wilson faced in Paris, his leadership of the Americans during the war, and his legacy.
