"Herbert Hoover Commission for Relief in Belgium." Hoover Online. National Archives and Records Administration. Web. 10 Jan. 2011. <http://www.ecommcode.com/hoover/hooveronline/HooverCRB/CRBIntro.html>. On this website I got a lot of information pertaining to my topic, but I also got some very important pictures too. One of the most important pieces of information that I got from this website was a document sent from President Wilson to Herbert Hoover praising Hoover for his excellent work. Another was a newspaper article that talked about how King Albert of Belgium was very grateful for Hoover’s relief efforts.

"Herbert Hoover Quote." The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum. National Archives and Records Administration. Web. 9 Dec. 2010. <http://hoover.archives.gov/>. This quote was important to my research because, even though the statement wasn't talking directly about what I'm researching overall, the way I interpreted it was how it could have an affect towards my topic.

"Herbert Hoover Relief Efforts." The Great Humanitarian. Cornell College. Web. 1 Mar. 2011. <http://www.cornellcollege.edu/history/courses/stewart/his260-32006/01%20one/images/line_lg.jpg>. From this website the important pieces of information I gathered were mostly pictures. One document I thought was very important was a newspaper clipping with a political

cartoon showing what the American people actually thought of Herbert Hoover's relief efforts.

Herbert Hoover, Vol. 1 Years of Adventure 1874-1920, The Macmillan Company, 1951 This book was an excellent primary source for my topic, because it was written by Herbert Hoover himself. The important information from this book was excellent because it had an entire 5 chapters that gave me day to day details on what Hoover did to save the Belgian population. Other important details I learned was about all the people behind the scenes that helped Hoover to his success.

"Our Documents - "Our Flags. Beat Germany. Support Every Flag That Opposes Prussianism. Eat Less of the Food Fighters Need. Deny Yourself Something. Waste Nothing" (ca. 1917-ca. 1919)." Welcome to OurDocuments.gov. National Archives and Records Administration. Web. 22 Feb. 2011. <http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php? flash=true&doc=105>. The poster I got from this website was important because it had to do with the U.S. Food Administration's efforts to get the American people to save their food so they could send it overseas to make our fighting soldiers stronger.

"Teaching With Documents." National Archives and Records Administration. National Archives. Web. 22 Feb. 2011. <http://www.archives.gov/education/lessons/sowseeds>.

I gained a few very good posters to use in presentation which dated back to when the U.S. Food Administration was trying to produce food for our allies overseas
