George H. Nash - Herbert Hoover
The Central Library is closed due to a suspected gas leak. All other locations are open regular hours. We expect to be open as usual tomorrow, Wednesday, December 11.
Seemingly austere and reportedly passive in the face of a national economic calamity, Herbert Hoover is somewhat of a political orphan. But biographer George H. Nash argues that Hoover was a much more dynamic, accomplished, and remarkable figure than the hoary stereotypes suggest.
Between 1975 and 1995 Nash lived in Iowa near the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library, where he prepared three volumes of the definitive biography of the 31st president.
