Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964) served as the 31st U.S. President from 1929-1933. 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). Blamed by many voters for the Great Depression, he was defeated in his bid for re-election by Franklin D. Roosevelt.

During his "retirement", Hoover was appointed to commissions to oversee government agencies by Presidents Harry S Truman (1947) and Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953). He also wrote a number of books and articles. Fold creases through signature. Silked on verso light show through at edges. Fragile.
