Hoover Company
1954–1966
Grandson of Hoover Company’s founder, Herbert Hoover Jr. joined the family firm at a young age, working on the assembly line in summers between school. As he gradually moved up through the company, succeeding his father as president in 1954, Hoover learned the ins and outs of the vacuum business. This wealth of knowledge ultimately led to the company’s strong growth in the electric sweeper market and helped bolster the Hoover brand.
