Description
Image of Calvin Coolidge in blue on the left side of the image, with the title text on the right on a background of blue, white, and red stripes. Calvin Coolidge was a politician and lawyer, and served as Vice President under Warren G. Harding, until Harding's death in 1923 when Coolidge became president, and was subsequently reelected to a full term in 1924. Coolidge's presidential reputation is for "restoring the dignity and prestige of the Presidency when it had reached the lowest ebb in our history," restoring public confidence in the White House by embodying the hopes of the middle class. Coolidge was nominated on the first Republican ballot in 1924 and ran a subdued, but successful campaign. During his presidency it was the peak of the "Roaring Twenties," a period of rapid economic growth, and policy-wise Coolidge was notoriously laissez-faire. Perhaps the most contentious issue during his presidency was relief for farmers, which he never did much for. As Walter Lippman pointed out, his political genius was "his talent for effectively doing nothing...active inactivity." In 1927 Coolidge issued the statement "I do not choose to run for President in 1928." Additional text includes: Campaign Headquarters -- Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour Restaurants.
