One a Day

September 2017 - Rapid City SD

Click on this link to get the background on the City of Presidents that I am showing daily.

There is no particular order to my posts.


31 - HERBERT HOOVER


Since President Hoover was a Quaker he did not take an oath of office, instead he affirmed his presidency. During his term, he approved the "Star-Spangled Banner" as our national anthem. Herbert Hoover was president during one of the worst economic disasters in America's history. Hoover was one of two presidents who did not accept a salary for being president, instead donating his salary to charity. Hoover is shown standing on a platform that symbolizes Hoover's contributions to people around the world. The base of this statue includes the Hoover Dam which is attributed to Hoover's engineering abilities and a chaff of wheat representing Hoover's organization of shipments of food for starving millions in Europe.

  1. The dam being incorporated into it is a nice touch.

    Jackie, I'm confused, I thought you were Canadian (citizensip), but here it sounds like you're American?

    1. I am Canadian, Jeanne, the description is from the Rapid City City of Presidents website, hence the reference to "our". Sorry about that!
