In September 1921, Lou Henry Hoover began a cross-country trip with her father Charles. Driving a 1919 Cadillac, the trip would take 34 days to wind its way over nearly 4,000 miles as they traveled from San Francisco to Washington, DC with brief stops in Iowa at Boone, Le Grand, Waterloo, Iowa City and West Branch. Supervisory archivist Craig Wright will offer highlights and colorful anecdotes from the trip.
A video feed of Craig’s presentation will appear at 6 p.m. on the Foundation’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/HooverPresFoundation/
We hope to resume normal scheduling next month. Watch our Facebook page and e-newsletters for details.
