Herbert Hoover at Harding Memorial
Description: Photograph showing a speech by President Herbert Hoover at the Harding Tomb and Memorial in Marion, Ohio. This historic site is the final resting place of Warren G. Harding and his wife, Florence. Harding was the 29th president of the U.S, (1921–1923) and the first president elected after women were allowed to vote in national elections. The Harding Tomb is a dramatic marble memorial to commemorate President and Mrs. Harding, and to serve as their tomb. Shortly after Harding died in office, The Harding Memorial Association was formed to raise money for a memorial site in honor of the late president. Construction of the tomb started in 1926 and was completed in 1927, although it didn't receive its formal dedication until 1931. View on Ohio Memory.
