This article focuses on the book "The Memoirs of Herbert Hoover." The public image of a President rarely resembles the reality of the man. By the publication of his "Memoirs," Hoover, it may be supposed, hopes to remove from his reputation the pall cast by Democratic campaign, hyperbole. The present volume relates the story of Mr Hoover's service as Secretary of Commerce and as President, save that he reserves the events of the Great Depression for subsequent treatment. In arraying his materials Hoover describes, one by one, the major governmental activities that concerned him as Secretary of Commerce, and these extended considerably beyond the routine functions of that Department.
