John Calvin Coolidge Jr. (July 4, 1872 – January 5, 1933)

Calvin Coolidge was the 30th president of the United States who was
mostly remembered for being a man of few words, which earn him the
nickname Silent Cal. He was a farmer, school teacher, and local store
clerk. Coolidge achieved national recognition for his handling of the
Boston Police Strike of 1919. He held a record number of presidential
press conferences for the time, totaling 520.
