Herbert Clark Hoover, The King of Spades
31st President of the United States, 1933—1945

Herbert Hoover, “Bert” to his friends, was a shy hard—working man, orphaned as a child, and a self—made millionaire by the age of 40.

Before he became president, Hoover was already famous for getting food to millions of hungry people in Europe following the first world war.
