Disaster Response and the Appointment of a Recovery Czar: The Executive Branch's Response to the Flood of 1927

Disaster Response and the Appointment of a Recovery Czar: The Executive Branch's Response to the Flood of 1927

Date: October 25, 2005
Creator: Kosar, Kevin R
Description: This report describes the flood of 1927, and assesses the federal government’s response thereto. In short, the federal response was an executive branch response. President Calvin Coolidge created a quasi-governmental commission that included members of his Cabinet and the American National Red Cross. This commission encouraged the public to donate funds to the relief effort. It also gave Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover near-absolute authority to organize and oversee its response. Hoover used this authority to weave together federal resources, American National Red Cross volunteers, and the private sector to carry out the relief and recovery program.
