On June 15, 1929, President Herbert Hoover signed the Agricultural Marketing Act into law bringing to a close eight years of intensive work by many people interested in the farm problem. Thus, the President had redeemed a campaign pledge to call a special session of Congress and secure a far-reaching piece of farm legislation. The course of agricultural relief, from its origin in the farm depression to the enaction of the new law, was influenced by practical politicians, professional farm representatives, and economic theorists. Each group had an impact on the final solution.
