HERBERT HOOVER
Herbert Hoover writes two days before his term ends a letter of appreciation to the director of the Bureau of Prisons.
Typed Letter Signed: "Herbert Hoover" as President, 1p, 6x9. The White House, Washington, 1933 March 1. To Hon. Sanford Bates, Director, Bureau of Prisons, Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. Two days before his presidential term ended, President Hoover writes, in full: "Before I leave this office I wish to express to you the appreciation I have for the magnificent public service you have given over these years, and my gratitude for your personal friendship. You have contributed more to the improvement of the whole prison system than any man who has ever occupied that position. I wish for you prosperity and contentment in the future." SANFORD BATES was the Director of the Bureau of Prisons, the agency responsible for maintaining the federal prison system. On June 23, 1934, FDR named Bates as one of five directors of the newly-formed Federal Prison Industries, Inc., an organization that had the "power to determine in what manner and to what extent industrial operations shall be carried on in the several penal and correctional institutions of the United States...." 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. Lightly soiled, two paper clip impressions at upper blank margin. Irregularly cut left edge. Overall, fine condition.
