Calvin Coolidge Collection, 1895-1933

Coolidge, Calvin, 1872-1933. John Calvin Coolidge, Jr. was the 30th President of the United States, from 1923 to 1929. Coolidge spent his early career working as a lawyer before he became involved in local government. In 1897, he began his political career as a member of the Republican City Committee in Northampton, Massachusetts. He was elected to City Council in the following year and spent the next 22 years working his way through the ranks of local and state government, including serving as City Councilman, Clerk of Courts, and Mayor for Northampton, Massachusetts, and serving as a Representative of Hampshire County to the Massachusetts House of Representatives; he also served as Lieutenant Governor and Governor of Massachusetts. He was elected Vice President of the United States in 1920. When President Warren G. Harding died suddenly in 1923, Coolidge succeeded to the presidency and finished Harding's term with success. He ran for President in the following election and won. Coolidge was a well-liked president, and he left the office still in favor with the American people. Coolidge died in 1929, one year after finishing his term as President of the United States.

The collection was created as the result of the combination of two separate donations of material, one from the Estate of Calvin Coolidge and one from Frank W. Stearns. The materials donated by the Estate of Calvin Coolidge consist of speeches and messages given by Calvin Coolidge, a copy of the "Public Record of Calvin Coolidge" compiled by Henry F. Long, and a document containing Coolidge's nomination expenses for Governor of Massachusetts in 1919 and for Vice President in 1920. The materials donated by Frank W. Stearns include speeches, memos, correspondence, telegrams, reports, and press releases from the period of Coolidge's presidency.
