He also had a history of getting himself caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. He had been in China during the boxer rebellion and had also been in France at the break out of World War I. Between this time and his presidency Hebert Hoover got married and had two children, a son and a daughter. What he is most known for is being the president when the stock market crashed and the great depression started. Because at that point he did nothing for the first few years the shanty towns that began to pop up all over the U.S were nick named Hooverville’s. One thing he did do at towards the end of he presidency is commissioned the building that is now known as the Hoover Dam. This dam supplies electricity to a large area of the southwestern United States. The easiest way to sum up he presidency is too little too late.
