President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Ben Carson as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development brought national attention to a department that’s long been in the shadows.
Now that a household name (no pun intended) is about to lead HUD, every day Americans, politicians and the media are all giving their two cents on what this means for the country.
But before people go speculating about the future of HUD, why don’t you give this quiz I made on the history of HUD secretaries a shot?
While Carson sparked a lot of opinions on the HUD secretary position, I would be curious to see if people can name any other HUD secretaries or facts about the position.
And I didn’t go easy on y’all, so good luck! If you get a 100%, you can consider yourself a HUD aficionado.
One note when taking the quiz — I did not count acting HUD secretaries or Carson in questions that asked about total numbers.
