President Calven Coolidge
3780 Route 100A
Plymouth, Vermont 05056
Voice: 802-672-3773

Our thirtieth president was born on July 4, 1872 in Plymouth, Vermont. He was the son of a village storekeeper. Coolidge graduated from Amherst College with honors. He entered politics in Northampton, Massachusetts. He worked his way up from councilman to Governor of Massachusetts as a Republican.

Calvin Coolidge became Vice President under Warren G. Harding. After his death, Coolidge became president. He called for isolation in foreign policy, tax cuts, and limited aid to farmers. He rapidly became popular and won a second term. In the following years, he voted for farm relief bills, and he killed a plan to produce cheap Federal electric power on the Tennessee River.

He was considered a political genius. Often times he would do nothing in office, which appeared to be exactly the right thing to do. People became more self reliant and the world of politics became less hectic, and more simple and civilized. He did not run for office again.

Coolidge retired to his home and later died on January 5, 1933.
