Herbert Hoover in the White House: The Ordeal of the Presidency

Serving as president from 1929 to 1933, Herbert Clark Hoover has often been viewed by historians as placid, passive, and unsympathetic. While the nation was reeling from the grips of the Great Depression, Hoover faced challenges that would test the stamina of even the most seasoned and resolute of leaders. Surveying his leadership qualities—or lack thereof—author Charles Rappleye offers an in-depth portrait of the nation’s 31st president.

In collaboration with the New-York Historical Society, the Bryant Park Reading Room presents a series of free lectures on popular topics including the Supreme Court, the Cold War, presidential biography, and more.
