Third Thursdays: We make available "Third Thursdays at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library" broadcasts on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. The program for October 20 is a author and historian Paul Juhl speaking on "A Hoover Homecoming Photo Album, August 1928" with photos of Hoover’s trip back to West Branch, IA, after receiving the Republican nomination for president in 1928. This presentation highlights the "homecoming" visit that the Hoover family made to Iowa during the summer of 1928. Although there was no official album, Juhl has arranged these seldom seen photographs to represent what could have been a family album. The programs are available online the next day and can be viewed anytime afterward. We supply the url under Current Events to watch during the broadcast at 6 p.m. that night or whenever it is convenient for you.
