Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
Thirtieth President
Term of Office: 1923-1929

The presidential election of 1924 was won by the Republican, Calvin Coolidge. Along with his running mate, Charles G. Dawes (1865-1951), they defeated John W. Davis (1873-1955) of the Democratic Party, and Robert M. La Follette (1855-1925), representing the Progressive and Socialist Parties, along with his Vice-presidential running-mate, Burton K. Wheeler (1882-1975).

Coolidge basically believed in maintaining the status quo and was conservative in his outlook. He supported tax cuts, an isolationist policy of sorts, and vetoed several farm relief bills and government efforts to provide inexpensive electric power to rural citizens. Of significance is the fact that despite growing concerns over the stock market, he felt the New York Stock Exchange should be overseen by the State, and not regulated by the Federal government.

Known as "Silent Cal", he often remained silent during meetings and interviews.

Coolidge declined to run for re-election in 1928.
