Herbert Hoover – Dust Bowl

“In the larger view the major forces of the depression now lie outside of the United States, and our recuperation has been retarded by the unwarranted degree of fear and apprehension created by these outside forces.” –President Herbert Hoover

Dust Bowl

“Of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the one named War has gone – at least for a while. But Famine, Pestilence and Death are still charging over the earth. Hunger is a silent visitor who comes like a shadow.

He sits beside every anxious mother three times each day. He brings not alone suffering and sorrow, but fear and terror.

He carriers disorder and the paralysis of government, and even its downfall. He is more destructive than armies, not only in human life but in morals.

All of the values of right living melt before his invasions, and every gain of civilization crumbles.” ― President Herbert Hoover
