Herbert Hooverby Amy Ruth, Lerner Publishing Group (Manufactured by)
Growing up a Quaker, Herbert Hoover learned the values that would lead to a successful career as a geologist, engineer, and politician. Having directed several relief programs, he was nicknamed the Great Humanitarian for his selfless dedication to helping feed, clothe, and protect the poor and helpless. Just eight months after winning a landslide victory to become president, his reputation was destroyed by his handling of the Great Depression. It wasn't until years later that his continued acts of public service were once again acknowledged.
