The memoirs of 31st U.S. President Herbert Hoover, who became unpopular enough during the Great Depression that the makeshift towns constructed by workers in search of jobs were referred to as Hoovervilles. In many ways, though, he was dealt a poor hand, and some of the policies he instituted during his administration, though they did not provide relief during his term, provided a foundation from which FDR could develop his New Deal. He was an able businessman who believed in the power of individuals to influence society and the economy; he was the first President to redistribute his salary.
