Your question would require your whole supply of type for an adequate answer -- and besides I am contemplating going camping where there is no budget and are no Russians! Yours faithfully". Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964) served as the 31st U.S. President from 1929-1933. 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. 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", Hoover headed two commissions to review the structure government agencies, by Presidents Harry S Truman (1947) and Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953). Many of the recommendations of each commission were adopted. Hoover also wrote a number of books and articles. Fine condition.
