90 years ago today - Nov 7, 1932

[Heber J. Grant]
I concluded that it would not be wise for me to attend the meeting in the Tabernacle in honor of President Hoover, for fear I would have to go out, which would create comment, and I could not very well explain, so I decided to visit my daughter Rachel Taylor and listen to the President's talk, by radio, and then go to my office, as I understood President Hoover was going to pay me a visit, which he did'he and his wife. My wife Gusta was with me when they called. There accompanied him secret service men, Reed Smoot and wife and some others. I assured the President that I felt highly honored that he should take the time to call at my office. I was very favorably impressed indeed with his talk, in fact I have been favorably impressed with all his talks that I have heard during this campaign. I certainly hope that he will be reelected.
