Calvin The Silent

Lowry, Edward G.
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p86
This article profiles U.S. politician Calvin Coolidge. Coolidge had been City Councilman, City Solicitor, Court Clerk, State Representative, Mayor, State Senator, Lieutenant-Governor and Governor one after another virtually continuously since 1899; that being in place and in politics was with him both a vocation and an avocation. Coolidge feels sometimes that he is not doing all that is expected of him for there are vague current reports that he asks wonderingly, "What do they talk about?" His day's work really begins when he gets to his hotel in the evening and finds his dress clothes laid out on the bed.
