|The Robinson Library >> Calvin Coolidge's Administration, 1923-1929|
Calvin Coolidge won no fewer than eighteen elections during his career, and only lost one (a bid for re-election to a city office). Americans respected the views of the closemouthed Coolidge, although he seldom said anything very original or profound. He issued few unnecessary public statements, and rarely wasted a word. His reputation for wisdom was based on his dry wit and robust common sense.
Chronology of His Life and Career
Notes and Trivia
Coolidge was named for his father, John Calvin Coolidge, but his family always called him Calvin or Cal; he dropped "John" from his name after college.
