Hoover @100

Ideas Defining A Century

Hoover Institution centennial logo

Hoover@100 marks the centennial of the public policy and archival research center established by Herbert Hoover at Stanford University in 1919.

Exploring the themes of freedom, peace, and education, which were central in the lives of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover, the exhibition in Hoover Tower reflects the initial impulse for the founding of the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace: to create a unique place to study contemporary history in order to promote a free and peaceful society.

As the Hoover Institution has charted new ground over the last century, its story has become more than collecting of library and archival materials, or supporting fellows researching and generating public policy ideas. It is the story of the modern era and how humanity continues to strive for a better tomorrow.
