Correspondence and memoranda, relating to American foreign policy during the presidential administration of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Herbert Hoover Jr. was born in London, England, in 1903 and, like his father, attended Stanford University. Following his graduation in 1925, Hoover attended the Harvard Business School to study aviation economics. Before entering the public sector, Hoover worked in the oil industry as a consultant to the Venezuelan and Iranian governments--experience which likely led then President Dwight Eisenhower to ask Hoover to accompany his special envoy to Iran in 1953. In 1954, Eisenhower tapped Hoover to serve as undersecretary of state, an appointment he held until 1957. Hoover died at home in 1969.
