Hoover, who had headed the Food Administration to provide relief to Europe and Russia during and after WWI, had served as Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (1921-1928) was a capable administrator, but he was blamed for the Great Depression and was defeated in his bid for re-election by Franklin D. Roosevelt.
