BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF
THE HONORABLE HERBERT HOOVER
Herbert Clark Hoover (August 10, 1874 –
October 20, 1964) was the 31st President
of the United States (1929–1933). Hoover, born to Quaker parents of German, Swiss, Canadian, English, and Irish descent, was originally a professional
mining engineer and author. He achieved
American and international prominence in humanitarian relief efforts and served
as head of the U.S. Food Administration before and during World War I. As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under
Presidents Warren Harding
and Calvin Coolidge,
he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric
"economic modernization". In the presidential election of 1928, Hoover easily won the Republican nomination, despite having no elected-office
experience. Hoover is the most recent cabinet secretary to be elected President
of the United States, as well as one of only two Presidents (along with William Howard
Taft) elected without electoral experience or high military rank.
America was at the height of an economic bubble at the time, facilitating a
landslide victory for Hoover over Democrat Al Smith.
Hoover, a globally experienced engineer, believed strongly
in the Efficiency
Movement, which held that the government and the economy were
riddled with inefficiency and waste, and could be improved by experts who could
identify the problems and solve them. He also believed in the importance of
volunteerism and of the role of individuals in society and the economy. Hoover,
who had made a small fortune in mining, was the first of two Presidents to
redistribute their salary (President Kennedy was the other; he donated all his
paychecks to charity). When the Wall
Street Crash of 1929 struck less than eight months after he took
office, Hoover tried to combat the ensuing Great Depression with government enforced
efforts, public works projects such as the Hoover Dam, tariffs such as the Smoot-Hawley
Tariff, an increase
in the top tax bracket from 25% to 63% and increases in corporate
taxes. These initiatives did not produce economic recovery during his term, but
served as the groundwork for various policies incorporated in Franklin D.
Roosevelt's New Deal. After
1933 he became a spokesman in opposition to the domestic and foreign policies
of the New Deal. In 1947 President Harry S. Truman brought him back to help
make the federal bureaucracy more efficient through the Hoover Commission. The consensus among
historians is that Hoover's defeat in the 1932 election was caused primarily by his failure to end the
downward economic spiral, although his support for strong enforcement of prohibition was also a significant factor.
