HERBERT HOOVER and his PRESIDENTIAL CABINET
Posed 13x11 photo on the White House lawn, signed by the President, by Vice President Curtis, and all 10 of his Cabinet officers, matted and framed to 23x20.
Photograph signed: "Patrick Hurley", "Charles Curtis", "Herbert Hoover", "He. Stimson", "A. W. Mellon", "R. P. Lamont", "Ray Lyman Wilbur", "Walter F. Brown", "William D. Mitchell", A. M. Hyde", "C. F. Adams" and "W. N. Doak". Sepia, 13x10½. Matted and framed to an overall size of 22½x20¼. Signed in order, front row first, in the lower margin. HERBERT HOOVER (1874-1964) had never held elected office before winning landslide election to the Presidency in 1928, but he had a broad background as a mining engineer, the architect of US relief efforts in stricken Europe during and following World War I, and Secretary of Commerce under President Coolidge. Hoover's efforts to combat the Depression were judged inadequate by the electorate, which repudiated him for Democrat Franklin Roosevelt in 1932. He had some opportunity to restore his reputation when President Truman appointed him to head a commission ("the Hoover Commission") to streamline the federal bureaucracy in 1947. This photo represents President Hoover's Cabinet from 1930 to 1932. Vice President CHARLES CURTIS (1860-1936), formerly the Senate Majority Leader, would be Hoover's running mate again in 1932. Serving throughout the Hoover Presidency were Secretary of State HENRY STIMSON (1867-1950), who had been Secretary of War under President Taft (1911-1913), and would hold that post again under President Franklin Roosevelt from 1940 to 1945, as FDR sought bipartisan unity before and during World War II; WILLIAM D. MITCHELL (1874-1955), President Coolidge's Solicitor General, and later the chief counsel to the Congressional committee investigating the attack on Pearl Harbor; Postmaster General WALTER F. BROWN (1869-1961); Secretary of the Navy CHARLES FRANCIS ADAMS III (1866-1954), lineal descendent of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, and the grandson and namesake of President Lincoln's influential ambassador to Great Britain during the Civil War; RAY LYMAN WILBUR (1875-1949), President Harding's personal physician, on leave from the Presidency of Stanford University to serve as Secretary of the Interior; and Secretary of Agriculture ARTHUR M. HYDE (1877-1947), formerly Governor of Missouri (1921-1925). Secretary of War PATRICK HURLEY (1883-1963), was elevated from Assistant Secretary after the death of Secretary James Good in December 1929. Hurley would later be appointed Ambassador to China under President Roosevelt (1944), but break with the administration over what he saw as inadequate support for Chinese President Chiang Kai-shek. WILLIAM N. DOAK (1882-1933) became Secretary of Labor in December 1930, following the election of his predecessor, James J. Davis, to the US Senate. Financial wizard and philanthropist ANDREW MELLON (1855-1937) was Secretary of the Treasury under three successive Presidents, Harding, Coolidge and Hoover, from 1921 to 1932. Threatened with impeachment by the House of Representatives, he accepted appointment as Ambassador to Britain, serving there for one year. ROBERT P. LAMONT (1867-1932) had the misfortune to serve as Secretary of Commerce during the Wall Street crash of 1929 and the deepening Depression which followed. He resigned from the Cabinet on August 7, 1932. Signatures light, faded, and smeared (most legible). Otherwise, fine condition. Not framed in the Gallery of History style.
