Herbert Hoover, whose reputation as one of America's most accomplished administrators and humanitarians led to a landslide victory in the 1928 Presidential election, was the 31st President of the United States. His meteoric rise to the Presidency was tarnished by the economic calamity of the Great Depression. As a former-President, Hoover served as an adviser and mentor for his successors.
