Title: Herbert Hoover

Description: Herbert Hoover (Herbert Clark Hoover; AKA: The Great Engineer; August 10, 1874-October 20, 1964); American mining engineer, politician and thirty-first President of the U.S. (March 4, 1929-March 4, 1933), shown in 1932 during his presidential campaign where he insisted that the Great Depression then plaguing the nation could only be undone by private enterprise that had ironically caused the stock market crash and that Government could do nothing about it; his opponent, Franklin D. Roosevelt (Franklin Delano Roosevelt; AKA: FDR; January 30, 1882-April 12, 1945); American politician (Governor of New York; January 1, 1929-December 31, 1932), and thirty-second President of the U.S., took the opposite view, stating that Government could and would solve the problem through his New Deal policies; Hoover warned that if Roosevelt was elected "the grass will grow in the streets of a hundred cities, a thousand towns; the weeds will overrun the fields...churches and schoolhouses will decay" only four years earlier, Hoover had stated: "The poorhouse is vanishing from among us...we shall soon, with the help of God, be in sight of the day when poverty will be banished from this nation," said Hoover in 1928, when he became the successful Republican candidate for U.S. President, his campaign promising "a chicken in every pot'; Hoover had mastered engineering and made more than $4 million in foreign interests before entering politics, becoming U.S. Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Harding and Coolidge (March 5, 1921-August 21, 1928) and where he found many ways for American businessmen to evade the Sherman Antitrust Law and for which a jealous President Coolidge sneeringly called Hoover "the wonder boy" as President, Hoover continued to favor financiers and business leaders while initiating many good public works, especially the harnessing of the Colorado River to provide fresh water to many Western states and for which Hoover Dam was named after him; yet, Hoover, despite his constant promise of prosperity being just around the corner, did little to stem increased inflation, agricultural and industrial erosions, collapsing commerce, and spiraling unemployment, eventually presiding over the worst economic and financial recession in American history - The Great Depression, producing more than thirteen million unemployed workers in the U.S. - which doomed his Presidency and political future and insured the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt;
