Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike) was a beloved five star General during World War II. He was elected the 34th President of the United States in November 1952. He served two terms as President, from January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961, during which he is remembered for bringing peace to Korea and easing tensions caused by the Cold War.
President Eisenhower is also known for his final address to the nation and his warnings against too many ties between the government and military organizations, also known as the Military-Industrial Complex. During his time in the White House, Alaska and Hawaii became states, and both NASA and the Interstate Highway System were created. A 2009 C-SPAN survey of presidential leadership ranked Eisenhower in the top eight of the first 42 U.S. Presidents.
