HERBERT HOOVER
Herbert Hoover's speech before the Diamond Jubilee of the Case Institute of Technology in Cleveland, Ohio given on April 11, 1953.
Printed Speech signed: "Herbert Hoover", 24p, 4x7¼. "Federal Socialization of Electric Power", delivered before the Diamond Jubilee of the Case Institute of Technology in Cleveland, Ohio given on April 11, 1953. Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964) served as the 31st U.S. President from 1929-1933. Blamed by many voters for the Great Depression, he had been defeated in his bid for re-election by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hoover, a capable administrator, had headed the Food Administration to provide relief to Europe and Russia during and after WWI and served as Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (1921-1928). The second President to attain the age of 90 years (John Adams was the first), Hoover lived a record 31 years after leaving the presidency. During his "retirement", he was appointed to commissions to oversee government agencies by Presidents Harry S Truman (1947) and Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953). Hoover also wrote a number of books and articles. On visits to New York City, the Hoovers made their home at the Waldorf-Astoria at 301 Park Avenue. On a visit there in 1944, the year after Hoover signed this letter, Mrs. Hoover suffered a heart attack and died suddenly at the age of 68. The ex-President spent the last years of his life in an apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria Towers. Fine condition.
