Herbert Hoover: Thirty-first president of the United States from 1929 - 1933

Herbert Clark Hoover was the 31st president of the United States who served from 1929-1933. He had previously been a successful Secretary of Commerce and had relieved citizens of Belgium in crisis during World War One. However, his presidency was not as well-remarked. Just a few months into his presidency, the Great Depression began. Many believed that Hoover did nothing to stop it, but in reality he did, but it was not enough to stop the depression. Hoover ran again in the 1932 election but was soundly defeated by Franklin Roosevelt. After his presidency, he served the longest retirement of any president up to that point, as it was only defeated by Jimmy Carter.


Hoover was born on August 10, 1874 in West Branch, Iowa.


Hoover died on October 20, 1964 in New York City.
