Lee Nash, professor of history and vice president for academic affairs of George Fox University, directed a biennial series of Herbert Hoover symposia from l977 to 2003. These conferences brought over sixty scholars to the campus to share their research on the varied career of our thirty-first president.


...This collection of essays elaborates on seven aspects of [Hoover's] foreign policy, from support for the League of Nations and the World Court after World War I to his far-sighted suggestions ending the Second World War and avoiding the excesses of the Cold War. It can only be hoped that such views about not becoming the world's policeman and the futility of trying to make 'the world safe for democracy' will be given more deserved attention at the end of the twenty-first century than they have been since the 1940s. -- Joan Hoff, author of Herbert Hoover: Forgotten Progressive, research professor, Montana State University ...GFU is to be commended...for compiling this well-reasoned collection of papers that articulates the contours of Mr. Hoover's service to humankind. This volume shows us how one man could make so much of a difference to the fate of the world. -- Timothy Walch, editor of Uncommon Americans: The Lives and Legacies of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover, director of the Herbert Hoover Presidentia ...an excellent collection of essays about Herbert Hoover's humanitarian services, practical peacemaking, and diplomatic efforts during five decades of the turbulent twentieth century. In this volume, drawing upon biennial symposia held at George Fox University, the director of that program features eight distinguished historians, who offer scholarly evaluations of the significant international influence of an oft under-rated American president. -- Arthur O. Roberts, professor-at-large, George Fox University
