Nash, George H.
September 1980
National Review;9/5/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 18, p1078
The article features the life of former U.S. President Herbert Hoover. It presents information on the family of the president. Born in West Branch, Iowa in 1874, Hoover was the son of a blacksmith. Before he was ten, Hoover was an orphan. Despite traumas, his later reminiscences of his childhood were gentle and idyllic. Hoover graduated from Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. After graduating in 1895, he spent some working time in the state and the Southwest. As a U.S. president, Hoover did not believe that equality of opportunity was automatically self-sustaining in a modern, technological economy.
