Typed Letter Signed: "Herbert Hoover" as Coolidge's Secretary of Commerce, 1 page, 6¾x9. Washington, 1928 July 7. To Walter L. Spaulding, Indian Orchard, Massachusetts. In full: "Many thanks for your letter of June 30th which is before me today. I want you to know how deeply I appreciate the kind note of friendship which it conveys. Yours faithfully" At the Republican National Convention held in Kansas City June 12-15, 1928, Hoover was nominated for President on the first ballot. He defeated Democrat Alfred E. Smith in November. 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 creased. Staple hole at upper left corner. Fine condition.
