Four days after leaving the Presidency, he signs a typed letter to a retired Methodist Bishop.
Typed Letter Signed: "Herbert Hoover", 1 page, 8x10. The Waldorf-Astoria, New York, 1933 March 8. To Rev. John William Hamilton, Stoneleigh Court, Washington, D.C. In full: "It was most considerate of you to write me your letter of March third. I want you to know that I appreciate deeply the friendship which lies behind it." Four days earlier, on March 4, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt was inaugurated President, succeeding Hoover. While Hoover and his wife returned to Palo Alto, California, where Mrs. Hoover designed their home on a hill overlooking the Stanford University campus, they made the Waldorf-Astoria at 301 Park Avenue their home on visits to New York City. On a visit to New York City in 1944, Mrs. Hoover suffered a heart attack and died suddenly at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel at the age of 68. The ex-President spent the last years of his life in an apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria Towers. John William Hamilton (1845-1934), a bishop of the Methodist Church, was called the "phoenix bishop" for his efforts to revitalize San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. An advocate for the rights of women and African-Americans inside and outside the church, he succeeded his older brother as Chancellor of American University (1916-1922). Fine condition.
