Photograph of Herbert Hoover standing at a microphone during a Lincoln Day banquet at the Multnomah Hotel in Portland on February 12, 1936. Nearby, others are standing and applauding. Hoover delivered an address at the banquet, which was held by the central committee of the Multnomah County Republican Party. A cropped version of this photograph was one of four that were published on Page 6 of the Oregon Journal on Thursday, February 13, 1936, under the headline “Herbert Hoover Tells What He Thinks of New Deal in Lincoln Day Address in Portland, Heard Over Nation.” This photograph had the following caption: “The former president smilingly receives ovation from guests at dinner under auspices of the Multnomah county central committee. One thousand persons heard his speech in the Multnomah hotel Supper Club.” The photographs accompanied the text of Hoover’s remarks, headlined “Hoover Talks of Confusion In Lincoln Day Address.” See related image Nos. 372A0292, 372A0294, 372A0295, and 372A0296.
