Thursday, August 2, 1934

Didn't do much today. Sure was hot. Gweyn Richards is going to move. Nadine and Ruth Ray came down.

Paul von Hindenburg (October 2, 1847 - August 2, 1934)
Second President of Germany
Second President of the German Reich
Preceded by Friedrich Ebert
Succeeded by Adolf Hitler (F├╝hrer and Chancellor)

A Prussian-German field marshal, statesman and politician, von
Hindenburg is commonly remembered as as the man who as German President appointed Nazi leader Adolf Hitler as Chancellor Germany.  Hindenburg personally despised Hitler, condescendingly referring to Hitler as that "Bohemian corporal."

The famed zeppelin Hindenburg that was destroyed by fire in 1937
was named in his honor
