CRAP !!
Hoover wasn't even invited to the ceremony !
President Roosevelt gave a speech during the ceremony and not once mentioned
Hoover's name. He, and most others as well, called it Boulder Dam, even
though it wasn't built in Boulder Canyon and was officially Hoover Dam, as
named by the Department of the Interior in 1930. Because of Hoover's
unpopularity at the time, President Roosevelt and many other government
officials intentionally referred to the dam as Boulder Dam until 1947, when
Congress affirmed that it is to be called Hoover Dam.
