George said they could completely divide the rooms by sliding the top part of the window down and the bottom part up--you can see the handles. Weird, huh?
The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum had a very snotty lady at the ticket counter. Yes, they have a passport stamp.

Interesting that no other Presidential Library made that distinction.
After his parents died when he was 9, he moved to Oregon to live with his uncle. He was a member of the Pioneer Class of Stanford University with a degree in geology and became a multi-millionaire mining engineer.
The children and citizens of Belgium gave Herbert Hoover this bronze statue of Isis, the Egyptian goddess of life in gratitude for his work on their behalf during and after WWI.
