Website Spotlight: Herbert Hoover



Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

Among the many worthwhile aspects of the Miller Center (University of Virginia) site, I ask the students to concentrate on the following four essays:

Life Before the Presidency
http://millercenter.org/president/hoover/essays/biography/2
Campaigns and Elections
http://millercenter.org/president/hoover/essays/biography/3
Domestic Affairs
http://millercenter.org/president/hoover/essays/biography/4
Foreign Affairs
http://millercenter.org/president/hoover/essays/biography/5
