Charles Curtis (Republican), 35th Vice President of the United States of America, 1st Term: March 4th 1929 - March 4th 1933

 

Hoover's first term is identical to his IRL first one, term highlights: the Federal Farm Board which would help farmers by holding surplus grain and cotton in storage; the Wall Street Crash of 1929 occurred which caused the Great Depression, the Reconstruction Finance Corporation was created which  provided financial support to state and local governments and made loans to banks, railroads, mortgage associations, and other businesses. Its purpose was to boost the country’s confidence and help banks resume daily functions after the start of the Great Depression; the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 was signed which implemented protectionist trade measures which ended up diminishing international trade; taxes were raised with the signing of the Revenue Act of 1932; an eight hour work day was instituted for government contractors with the signing of the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931; yellow-dog contracts were banned with the signing of the Norris–La Guardia Act; the Bonus Army march was dispersed and their demands were rejected.
