Herbert Hoover was the 31st president and served the country from March 4th, 1929 to March 4th, 1933. He was born in West Branch, Iowa. His dad died when he was 6 and his mom when he was 9. He was raised by his Uncle John Minthorn and attended the inaugural year at Stanford in 1891.
He came to the presidency from his position of Secretary of Commerce under presidents Harding and Coolidge. This no doubt shaped his views on having business and government “work together”. He was preceded by Calvin Coolidge and was succeeded by Franklin Roosevelt.
