The United States had been in the midst of the Roaring Twenties until Hoover's first year in office, when the economy was wiped out overnight in the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Of the thousands of those unemployed by the second year of the Depression, some of those who had lost their jobs and homes set up shanty towns - widely referred to as "Hoovervilles" - that could be found in places all over the country. (DW: "Daleks in Manhattan")

A depiction of him in the form of a wax figure was present at the Madame Tussauds waxworks in London during the early 1970s. (DW: "Spearhead from Space")
