Lou Hoover-In 1916 while the great war raged, future President Herbert Hoover and his family lived in London. One night he and Lou heard the sounds of a Zeppelin raid. They found their sons' bedroom empty. Finally found the boys on the roof. Instead of hauling the boys downstairs, Herbert and Lou sat with them and the whole family watched a Zeppelin being shot down. The following day Herbert took the two boys to the crash site to collect a few pieces of the airship.
