Herbert Hoover Background: 

After World War I, Hoover became the head of the Food Administration and oversaw a major program of food aid to people in Europe, especially Russia, who were devasted by the war. While in office, the stock market had its worst ever crash in 1929, setting off the Great Depression, which he tried to end but was unsuccessful. 

Most circulating coins saw their mintage sharply reduced due to the Depression, and the 1932 Washington quarter dollar debuted. 

Notable quote: “Blessed are the young for they will inherit the national debt.” “Absolute freedom of the press to discuss public questions is a foundation stone of American liberty.”
