  •  Lived to be 90, not 93 (0+ / 0-)

    Hoover's dates: August 10, 1874-October 20, 1964.

    Still, this does encompass a wide swath of history--born during Reconstruction, died after Kennedy's assassination.

    Only Gerald Ford and Ronnie Reagan made it to 93, although we have to give a shout out to early record-holder John Adams, who made it to 90 (just a few months shy of 91) w-a-y back in the day.

    Sorry for the school-marmish correction, but I'm a bit of a history geek. Love seeing history-themed diaries--thanks for the work!
