John Calvin Coolidge

Thirtieth president of the United States. John Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4, 1872. He was president from 1923 to 1929. Coolidge had a low-key image and believed that president job was to lower any possible cost of government. He was known as an honest politician, popular candidate who won almost every election he entered and he was indeed a family man. Unfortunately the death of his teenage son had left saddened years for him and his family while at the White House.

Coolidge was Vice- president and became president when Harding died almost halfway through his presidency on August 1923.

Foreign policy did not project many impressive achievements, except the main focus was on American financial interest. However, his secretary of state, Frank B. Kellogg won a Nobel Peace Price for the Kellogg-Brianed Pact, a famously known agreement to achieve international peace.

The decade of 1920s also referred as a “Golden Era”, because of the prosperity that many achieved and shared. But farming did not do so well during his presidency as industrial section did.

Coolidge refused to run a campaign and become president for another term in 1929, and era of prosperity soon started to fallen after he left Washington.
