On November 19, 1928, President-elect Hoover embarked on a ten-nation "goodwill tour" of Central and South America. While crossing the Andes Mountains from Chile, a group of Argentinian Anarchist, led by Severino Di Giovanni, planted an explosive on board the presidential train as it crossed the Argentinian central plain.

The Senate Majority Leader and Vice President-Elect, Charles Curtis, was sitting in Congress, when a clerk came up to the desk, upon hearing the news, Curtis stood up and informed the sitting members the news and requested for recess which is unanimously voted in favour for.

The two men had not been close, with Curtis being the leader of the anti-Hoover movement during the Republican Primary 1928 and although accepted being his running mate and not really talked since their victory on November 6.
But so began Curtis’s transition from Vice President-Elect to President Elect.

On March 3rd, Curtis resigned from the Senate and on March 4th he took the oath of office of President on the East Portico of the US Capitol Chief Justice (and former president) William Howard Taft administered the oath of office. This was the first inaugural ceremony recorded by newsreel cameras. Curtis arranged for members of the Native American community to march in parade as well as a Native American jazz band to perform at the inauguration.

At 69 years old when he took office, this made him the oldest incoming President at the time, surpassing William Harrison. He was also the first native Kansan, the first Native American, and the first person of color to hold the post. The first person enrolled in a Native American tribe to be elected to such a high office, Curtis decorated his office with Native American artifacts and posed for pictures by wearing Indian headdresses.
A widower when he was elected vice president in 1928, Curtis had his long-since-married sister, Dolly Curtis Gann, act as his official hostess for social events. She had lived with her husband, Edward Everett Gann, in Washington, DC, since about 1903. He was a lawyer, once an assistant attorney general in the government, he would serve as an advisor to President Curtis.

Judicial Appointments
1. Chief Justice William Howard Taft retired on February 3, 1930, and the same day Curtis, nominated Associate Justice, Willis Van Devanter,
to fill the vacancy.
2. To fill the vacancy left by, Willis Van Devanter’s elevation, on his confirmation in senate, Curtis, would nominate former Illinois Governor, Frank Orren Lowden.
3. Associate Justice Edward T. Sanford died on March 8, 1930, Curtis would nominate former Iowa Senator and Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, William S. Kenyon to the seat.
4. In 1932, Associate Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes announced his plans to retire. Curtis appointed Chief Justice of the Kansas Supreme Court, William Agnew Johnston as his nominee.

There were rumours of Curtis nominating, Lyda Conley or Thomas Dodge, however both being Native American and Lyda being a woman, Curtis knew it would be an up hill struggle.
