An excerpt from the article 37 facts about Los Angeles

The games were held from July 30 to August 14, 1932, during the global financial crisis. Therefore, many countries did not participate. 37 countries took part (46 at the Amsterdam Games in 1928). The then US president, Herbert Hoover, also did not participate in the Games. Although the Olympic organizing committee did not provide detailed financial data for the Games, contemporary newspapers reported a million USD profit for the city.
