Calvin Coolidge: 30th President of the United States

Sponsored by the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation, this site contains important historical material about the president who garnered the sobriquet "Silent Cal." Along with a variety of galleries featuring rotating exhibits of visual material related to President Coolidge, there is an archive of his speeches ranging from his time as governor of Massachusetts to his time as President. There is also a section offering a chronology of his life and a research section outlining the location of various important primary materials. For those seeking more involvement with the Foundation, there is extensive information about membership and the various scholarly and commemorative activities that they conduct. Perhaps the most engaging part of the site is a section titled "Ask the President," where visitors can ask Jim Cooke, a professional actor who has played Coolidge in a one-man play since 1985, questions about the President's life. All of the most recent responses are posted on the site, and Mr. Cooke answers the questions in the first person with candor and eloquence. Anyone seeking information about President Coolidge or for students seeking to learn about his life will find this site quite useful.
