The Princeton Alumni Weekly of September 2020 has several articles and references to Woodrow Wilson 1879. None, however, identify Wilson as a Democrat. Almost all of the Southern Democrats of his day were segregationists and racists.

This continued long into the 20th century. Most Southern Democrats in the Senate and House voted against the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.
