    Lou Henry Hoover (March 29, 1874 — January 7, 1944), humanitarian, Girl Scout leader, women’s athletics advocate, and First Lady of the United States, was born in Waterloo, Iowa, on March 29, the first child of Charles and Florence Weed Henry. Her father was a bank manager, and her mother was a homemaker. Educated in the public schools of Waterloo and Shell Rock, Lou enjoyed camping and fishing and had a deep appreciation for the nature and wildlife of her native state. In 1885, the Henry family moved west to Whittier, California, where Charles was one of the founders of a new bank. In 1892, the family moved to Monterey, California, where Charles became a partner in another bank.

    In 1893, after studying for a teaching degree, Lou pursued a degree in geology at Stanford University. It was there she met Herbert Hoover, and the two became friends. They were married on February 10, 1899, and the next day they left for China. Under contract to the Chinese government, Herbert Hoover investigated the conditions in Chinese mines and made recommendations for improvement. The Hoovers settled in the port city of Tientsin, where Lou learned to speak and write Chinese. In June 1900, a political uprising known as the Boxer Rebellion forced the Hoovers and other foreigners to take refuge for about a month. For the next 14 years they traveled the world. Lou gave birth to two sons, Herbert Jr. in 1903 and Allan in 1907, and continued to assist her husband in his work. During those years, Lou and Herbert Hoover translated from Latin to English, De Re Metallica, an encyclopedia on mining written in 1565 by Georgius Agricola. They were both awarded the Gold Medal for lifetime a...

    She also took an active interest in the Girl Scout movement in the 1920s, devoting many hours and much energy to the organization. She was a troop leader, a member of the Girl Scout Council in Washington, and twice served as GSA president, once in the 1920s and again in the 1930s. It was during her second term that the GSA leadership approved a national plan to bake and sell cookies in support of scouting. Lou Hoover also was a strong advocate of physical fitness for girls and women. She became a vice president of the National Amateur Athletic Federation in the 1920s with a challenge to organize a women's division. She addressed philosophic differences over competition vs. participation, issues of facilities and space for women, and the persistent lack of qualified women's coaches.

    As First Lady from March 4, 1929, to March 4, 1933, Lou Hoover was in the public eye. Although she did not give many speeches or grant any interviews, she was the first First Lady to speak on the radio. She also caused a small controversy by inviting the wife of an African American congressman, Jesse DePriest, for tea at the White House. The southern press condemned Mrs. Hoover for this gesture, and the incident made her more wary of the press. Her last trips to Iowa came during her husband’s two campaigns for President. She accompanied him on visits to Cedar Rapids and West Branch in 1928 and to Des Moines in 1932. She never returned to Iowa again. When the Hoovers left Washington, D.C. in 1933, Lou looked forward to more time in California. In the late 1930s, the Hoovers began to divide their time between Palo Alto and New York City. On January 7, 1944, she suffered an acute heart attack from which she did not recover. Lou Henry Hoover’s papers are substantial, amounting to 182 li...
