Herbert Hoover's Oregon Boyhood: Years of Growth

Herbert Hoover came to Newberg, Oregon in November 1885 from West Branch, Iowa as an orphaned 11-year old. When he left from Salem in 1891 to join the first class at Stanford University, he was a self-confident 17-year old aspiring to become a mining engineer. He achieved even more in his roles as an outstanding engineer, a great humanitarian, a president during the Great Depression, and an elder statesman. The influence of Hoover’s Oregon years has only recently been understood through new biographical interpretation.

This is an original exhibit created by the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum and the NSCDA-OR for the Chehalem Cultural Center.
