Letter: In Hoover's honour

Sir: If Chris Gulker would pause for a closer look at Hoover Tower, mid-jog, in his circuit along Sand Hill Road and through the Stanford University campus, he would discover that Stanford's distinctive landmark was named not "for the cross-dressing former head of the FBI", but for the former US President Herbert Hoover ("Outraged? A brisk jog is just the ticket", 16 August).
