A photo of the inauguration of Herbert Hoover on March 4, 1929. Hoover served as the 31st President of the United States for one term, until March 4, 1933. The stock market crash in 1929 and the Great Depression were influential in his not winning a second term. Franklin Roosevelt won and began the first of his terms, overturning many of Hoover's economic policies.

The crowds on President Hoover's inauguration day, March 1929. Inauguration day moved from March to January in 1937 - can you imagine boys in trees with the security today?
