Description: Writing from the famous Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City, former President Herbert Hoover sent this enigmatic letter to Mr. Thomas H. McInnerney asking him to meet for lunch to chat about an unnamed “movement”. Hoover tells McInnerney, “I received… the enclosed material on the movement which I discussed with you some days ago. One of these leaflets describes the character and purpose of the organization, and the others are specimens of the kind of material which they formulate and circulate.”

Herbert Hoover (1874-1964) served as the 31st President of the United States (1929-1933). His presidency is remembered for the beginning of the Great Depression, with the stock market crash occurring only eight months into his first year. He served one term, losing the presidency to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the election of 1932.

Thomas H. McInnerney, alongside Edward E. Rieck, founded the National Dairy Products Corporation in 1923. The modern day iteration of the National Dairy is Mondelez International, the rebranded Kraft Foods Inc. that produces such products as Chips Ahoy!, Oreo, Ritz, and Triscut.
