Herbert Clark Hoover was the 31st President of the United States. He was a professional mining engineer and was raised as a Quaker. A Republican, Hoover served as head of the U.S. Food Administration during World War I, and became internationally known for humanitarian relief efforts in war-time Belgium.
As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge, he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric "economic modernization.”
Herbert Hoover took office in 1929, the year the U.S. economy plummeted into the Great Depression. Although his predecessors’ policies undoubtedly contributed to the crisis, which lasted over a decade, Hoover bore much of the blame in the minds of the American people. As the Depression deepened, Hoover failed to recognize the severity of the situation or leverage the power of the federal government to squarely address it. The IA-born president was widely viewed as callous and insensitive toward the suffering of millions of desperate Americans.

The Republican presidential nominee in 1928 was Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover of CA. Charles Curtis of KS was his running mate. The Democrats nominated Alfred E. Smith, governor of NY, and Senator Joseph T. Robinson of AR. Hoover and Smith had been widely known as potential presidential candidates long before the campaign of 1928, and both were generally regarded as outstanding leaders quite apart from the office of president.
Seldom has this been the case of both contenders in an election. However, each candidate faced serious discontent within his party membership, and neither had the wholehearted support of the party organization.
Hoover won easily by carrying 444 electoral votes, 40 states and 58.2% of the popular vote.
