"Using his combined talents of engineering and management, Herbert Hoover organized a gigantic program for feeding the starving peoples of Europe. Returning to America, he put down on paper the spiritual, economic and political characteristics which enabled Americans to produce the materials needed to bring peace to the world and at the same time to discharge the social and spiritual commitment to give economic assistance to the people ravaged by war. The result of his research was published in 1922 (Doubleday – Page) in a book entitled, “American Individualism.” (Hoover Presidential Foundation).
