(which in 1927, stood at 732 stations) Hoover, with the help of Dill and White, promoted the Dill-White Bill which eventually would become the Radio Act of 1927.

However, Hoover's contributions to regulate radio were very important in the founding of our modern radio system. [20]

Hoover also played a key role in major projects for navigation, irrigation of dry lands, electrical power, and flood control.

He became president of the American Child Health Organization, and he raised private funds to promote health education in schools and communities.

Although he continued to consider Harding ill-suited to be President, the two men nevertheless became friends. Hoover accompanied Harding on his final trip out West in 1923. It was Hoover who called for a specialist to tend to the ailing Chief Executive, and it was also Hoover who contacted the White House to i
