    Herbert Hoover the Hero? Part 1

    Herbert Hoover the Hero? Part 1

    President Herbert Hoover is known as the President who kept Americans in the Great Depression. But he was once a world wonder, a businessman turned philanthropist that helped people all over the world be fed and able to get home when war broke out. He was nominated for 5 Nobel Peace prizes. So why did the man who had all success in business and politics prior to the Presidency, fail in the eyes of the American people as President so miserably? Matt Schaefer at the Herbert Hoover Museum helps explain Hoover's years after earning his fortune. 

    Also, we talk about how he is associated with Laura Ingalls Wilder of the Little House books, and why letters between Laura and her daughter live at the museum.
