Presidents during the Depression

Herbert Hoover (1874-1964), America’s 31st president, took office in 1929, the year the U.S. economy plummeted into the Great Depression.He was widely viewed as callous and insensitive toward the suffering of millions of desperate Americans. As a result, Hoover was soundly defeated in the 1932 presidential election by Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945).

Hoover was not liked very much by the people of America. He cut taxes and signed the Smoot-Hawley Act into law. This was his biggest mistake. Roosevelt created "New Deal" laws that brought about vast economic reform. (AAA, CCC, NRA)
