President Hoover Signs His 1931 Speech At The Dedication Of The Memorial To Warren Harding
HERBERT HOOVER (1874-1964). Hoover was the Thirty-First President. TDS. 4pg. 8” x 10”. June 16, 1931. Marion, Ohio. A typed document signed “Herbert Hoover” as President at the conclusion. The speech is entitled “Address of President Hoover on the Occasion of the Dedication of the Harding Memorial, Marion, Ohio, 16 June 1931.” President Harding had died eight years earlier, and President Hoover was invited to speak at the Harding Memorial. The President remembers Harding and denounces the Teapot Dome criminals. “Warren G. Harding came from the people...It became his responsibility to lead the Republic in a period of reconstruction from another great withstand encroachment upon its independence...”. Hoover recalls his first meeting with Harding and describes Harding's “great disillusionment” following the revelations of the Teapot Dome scandal, concluding that “There is no disloyalty and no crime in all the category of human weaknesses,” he says, “which compares with the failure of probity in the conduct of the public trust.” The document is in very fine condition with staple holes in the top corners. This manuscript sold at the Christie’s Forbes sale in 2006 for $1,200. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
