Publication of lost Herbert Hoover memoir concludes busy year for Hoover Press

George Nash, a historian, lecturer, and authority on the life of Herbert Hoover, gave a presentation covering Hoover’s extraordinary life and career, tracing his life from Iowa to Stanford to engineer turned humanitarian. Nash notes that Hoover saved more lives with his humanitarian relief than any other human being in history and goes on to discuss his political life, his ideas and ideals, and his career after the presidency. Nash illuminates how Hoover arose from the ashes of his presidency to crusade against the New Deal, collectivism, and its aftermath. Through Nash’s talk we got to know the human and humane Hoover and his undying quest for liberty and freedom.
