President Herbert Hoover

     Clearly Herbert Hoover has admirers and critics. The former include most of those who knew him well. Ms Gayle Henderson Kierulff writes:
     I am a 1959 graduate of Stanford and truly appreciate your kind words about Herbert Hoover as he was a special person in our family. He was a first or second cousin of my maternal grandmother who spent her early life in Algona, Iowa. I, too, have always felt he was treated most unfairly by many who did not appreciate the numerous contributions he made both nationally--in many fields--and internationally.
