Biography: 

Calvin Coolidge was the thirtieth President of the United States (1923-1929). Born in Vermont and graduated from the University of Amherst in Massachusetts, he was a fiscally conservative Republican who favored a laissez-faire economic policy; during his administration, tax rates for individuals and businesses were cut and regulatory practices on businesses were minimized. In "Death Drag," Ginsfarb blames President Coolidge's economic policies for "ruining" his former business (192) and forcing him into barnstorming. Ginsfarb may be just ignorant, or looking for someone official to blame for his failure; Faulkner, on the other hand, is surely making a joke at Ginsfarb's expense.
