Civil Appointment signed: "Calvin Coolidge" as Governor, "Albert P. Langtry" as Secretary of the Commonwealth, 12x19, Boston, 1920 June 16. Appointment of J. Payson Bradley of Boston as a member, and Chairman, of the commission to establish a memorial to soldiers and sailors from Massachusetts who served their country in time of war. After losing an election for School Committee in 1905, CALVIN COOLIDGE (1872-1933, born in Plymouth, Vermont) never lost another one. He was Mayor of Northampton, Massachusetts (1910-1911), State Senator (1912-1915), Lieutenant Governor (1916-1918), Governor (1919-1920), vice president (1921-1923) and president (1923-1929). He earned a national following during the Boston Police Strike of 1919, when as Governor he declared, "There is no right to strike against the public safety by anyone, anywhere, any time." "Silent Cal," as he was called for his economy of speech, succeeded to the Presidency upon the death of Warren Harding and won election to his own full term in 1924. Despite his taciturn manner, Coolidge gave more press conferences than any President before or since, and was the first to deliver a political speech on radio. How one rates the Coolidge Presidency depends largely on whether one shares his belief in reduced government spending and regulation.
