Calvin Coolidge

By Claude M. Fuess
Little, Brown, 1940
522 pp. $4.75

If you are an admirer of Coolidge, you will probably like this biography; if you regard him as a political accident, you will feel that several things about his strange rise to the highest office in the land still require more candid explanation than Dr. Fuess has given them here in spite of his having had access to Coolidge's private papers.
