Recollections of Thomas R. Marshall: A Hoosier Salad
Kessinger Publishing, Jun 1, 2005 - 464 pages
1925. Marshall, the 28th vice president of the United States who served in the Democratic administration of President Woodrow Wilson, was the first vice president in almost a century to serve two terms in office. A popular public official, he was heard to make the oft-quoted remark during a tedious debate: What this country needs is a really good five-cent cigar. Marshall's personal influence on legislation was a powerful aid to the Wilson administration. He advocated strict neutrality prior to World War I (a stand he later regretted), supported the League of Nations and opposed woman suffrage. His homespun philosophy and humor are recorded in this volume.
