Hoover, Herbert C (1874-1964) 31st President of the U.S. (1929-33); born West Branch, Iowa. He easily won the 1928 Republican presidential nomination and defeated Democrat Alfred E. Smith. His administration was dominated by the Great Depression, ushered in by the stock market crash of Oct. 1929. Believing the economy would regenerate spontaneously, Hoover was reluctant to extend federal activities. He ran for reelection in 1932 but was overwhelmingly defeated by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Later, Hoover coordinated (1946) food supplies to war-ravaged countries and headed (1947-49) the Hoover Commission, which recommended administrative reforms of the executive branch.

Hoover, Herbert, The Memoirs of Herbert Hoover 3 Vol., Signed (The MacMillan Co., N.Y., 1951).
Each volume has been signed and inscribed by Hoover: "To Gardner Richardson With The Kind Regards of Herbert Hoover". Dust jackets on all of the volumes are worn with some tearing, particularly at the top and bottom edges. Overall, very good condition.
Estimated Value $400 - 450.
Please note the extensive collection of Presidential biographies in our Political Memorabilia section.
