On the right is a small excerpt from the Pathfinder review of Eugene Lyons' book, Our Unknown Ex-President (1948). The author outlined the various measures taken by the Hoover administration during the earliest years of the Great Depression in hopes that the flood waters would subside:

"He fought for banking reform laws, appropriations for public works, home-loan banks to protect farms and residences. He asked for millions for relief to be administered by state and local organizations".

"A Democratic Congress refused to heed his suggestions. An avalanche of misfortunes, including droughts, floods and world economic crises, made his positions even more difficult... In spite of these obstacles, Lyons believes that the country was well on the road to recovery in 1932 and that it was the election of Roosevelt which induced the bank panic and prolonged the Depression until World War II".
