Calvin Coolidge Background:
His term was marked by economic prosperity and became known as the “Roaring Twenties,” but he accomplished little in office and was known as “the do-nothing president.” Historians still debate whether his policies helped cause the Great Depression, but he is praised for supporting racial equality and small government.
During his tenure, he became in 1926 the only living president to be featured on a commemorative half dollar, the 1926 Sesquicentennial half dollar.
Notable quote: “Don’t expect to pull up the weak by bringing down the strong.”
- Born: July 4, 1872 in Plymouth, VT
- Spouse: Grace Goodhue Coolidge
- Died: January 5, 1933 in Northampton, MA
