Two months after leaving the White House, he signs a typed letter to two residents of Cumberland, Maryland.
Typed Letter Signed: "Herbert Hoover", 1 page, 7¼x10¼. Stanford University, California, 1933 May 27. On stationery imprinted with his name to Mr. H.B. Schoof, Cumberland, Maryland. In full: "I deeply appreciate the note signed by you and Mr. Zembower of May 23, sending me a cachet of the dedication and opening of your Post Office. I want you to know that I am grateful for the friendship which animated it. I wish to take this occasion also to express my hope for the prosperity and contentment of you both. Yours faithfully". With original stamped, typed mailing envelope. Written less than three months after Hoover had left the White House (March 4, 1933) to return to Palo Alto, California, where Mrs. Hoover designed their home on a hill overlooking the Stanford University campus, where they had met while students. 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, Mrs. Hoover suffered a heart attack and died suddenly at the Waldorf-Astoria at the age of 68. The ex-President spent the last years of his life in an apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria Towers. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Lightly soiled at blank right margin. Fine condition.
