Unfortunately, my nearest book was a bio of Milton Friedman. Yawn-o-rama.
"It was natural that Hoover, who presided over the worst economic debacle in national history, would be thrown out of office in 1932, when Friedman as [sic] in his first year at Chicago. About one individual seeking work in four was unemployed, deflation was in the double digits, banks were failing by the hundreds and even thousands, and national output had declined by almost one-third since Hoover had taken office in 1929. Roosevelt won an electoral college landslide, 472 votes to 59, and swept large Democratic majorities into both houses of Congress."
