"Trained as an engineer, during and after World War I Herbert Hoover personified American generosity as "The Great Humanitarian." Join us as we explore the public and private sides of America's thirty-first president. Hoover family home movies show the Depression-era president at his Virginia fishing camp Rapidan; rare campaign films and a memorable person-to-person interview illustrate both Hoover's strengths and his weaknesses, especially as a public communicator."

--Richard Norton Smith
