He ascribed to the “invisible hand” theory of economics espoused by Adam Smith. By most accounts, this worsened and lengthened the Great Depression, for which Hoover will forever be synonymous. Trivia: First president born west of the Mississippi. Youngest member of Stanford’s first graduating class. Because he was a Quaker, he did not take the oath of office. Only president whose vice president was nonwhite – Charles Curtis was a Kaw Indian. First of two presidents to donate his salary to charity. First president to have a telephone on his desk. Approved "The Star-Spangled Banner" as national anthem. When the Hoovers wanted to speak privately in the presence of guests, they spoke Mandarin Chinese. Two asteroids named in his honor – Herberta and Hooveria. Last president to have his term of office end on March 3. Wrote 16 books. One of two presidents to live past his 90th birthday.
