This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Calvin Coolidge and a summary of issues which led up to his election. Both presentations together number 35 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
John Calvin Coolidge Jr. was the 30th President of the United States. A Republican lawyer from VT, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of MA state politics, eventually becoming governor of that state. His response to the Boston Police Strike of 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight and gave him a reputation as a man of decisive action.
Soon after, he was elected as the 29th Vice President in 1920 and succeeded to the Presidency upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding in 1923. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small government conservative, and also as a man who said very little, although having a fair sense of humor.
Coolidge led the nation through most of the Roaring Twenties, a decade of dynamic social and cultural change, materialism and excess. He was a pro-business conservative who favored tax cuts and limited government spending. Yet some of his laissez-faire policies also contributed to the economic problems that erupted into the Great Depression.
Power point #1 is entitled, US Presidents - #30 - Calvin Coolidge and contains 18 slides and covers the following:
Law, Marriage & Family
The Roaring Twenties
Coolidge, Father Figure
Post Presidential Years
Retirement & Death
Oath of Office
End of Presentation
The Republican nominees for president and vice president in 1924 were President Calvin Coolidge and Charles G. Dawes of IL. President Warren G. Harding had died in 1923. In choosing their candidates the Democrats were faced with polar opposites. Alfred E. Smith of NY was the epitome of the urban machine politician, and he was also Catholic; William G. McAdoo was a Protestant popular in the South and West. A deadlock developed; on the 103rd ballot the delegates finally settled on John W. Davis, a corporation lawyer, and Charles W. Bryan of NB, the brother of William Jennings Bryan.
Coolidge won easily by carrying 382 electoral votes, 35 states and 54.0% of the popular vote.
