Pages of History: Herbert Hoover passes through Crescent City

From the pages of the Crescent City American, August 1928.

Herbert Hoover, secretary of the Interior and Republican nominee for the presidency of the United States, passed through Crescent City on his way to upper Klamath for a fishing trip in Siskiyou County at Brown’s Camp, on Sunday about noon, stopping in Mill Creek Grove for lunch. 

The party, which accompanied Secretary Hoover, numbered between 40 and 50, and included many notables from the East as well as members of the newspaper and moving picture fraternities. 

The party camped at Bull Creek in Humboldt County on Saturday night, resuming the journey Sunday morning. Upon arriving at the Del Norte County line, the party was met by Traffic Officer Bill Togni, who escorted it on through to the county line for Josephine County, Ore. Mr. Hoover and the rest of his party were high in their praise for Officer Togni for the efficient manner in which he cleared the road for the caravan.
