Hoover as a child.

Hoover was a very shy and quiet child. Part of the fact that is parents had passed away at a young age.

He never did very well in school except for in math, he always did very well in math and enjoyed it.

Hoover and the financial crash.

Ironically enough a year before the financial crash Hoover said this "We in America today are nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land." When the financial crash happened prices for everything alomost doubled.

This caused a great problem for president Hoover, because of this he had lost his chance to be reelected. This also made a very bad impression on Hoover because it was thought to be his fault. These places called Hoovervilles were the places where people stayed when they lost their home.
