Calvin Coolidge has long been dismissed as silent, and with little to say. This collection of over 250 quotations reveals the concise, direct, even eloquent way he stated his views on issues still relevant to the interests of contemporary America. The quotations cited by date and circumstances are organized alphabetically for use by speakers, writers, researchers, and policy makers – in fact, anyone with an interest in American history. Also included are Milestones in Coolidge's life, a Selected Bibliography, and a listing of Coolidge Archives headed by the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation in Plymouth Notch, Vermont.
