Answer: Calvin Coolidge was known for his quiet demeanor, which earned him the nickname "Silent Cal." Coolidge refused to use the telephone for presidential business while in office.

Coolidge enjoyed practical jokes such as buzzing for his bodyguards and then hiding under his desk. He was the first president to have his inauguration heard on the radio.
