Gerald Ford Short Bio

Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. , born Leslie Lynch King, Jr. (Omaha, Nebraska, July 14, 1913-Rancho Mirage, California , December 26, 2006), was the thirty-eighth president of the United States, who held the post from August 9, 1974 until January 20, 1977, following the resignation of Richard Nixon for the Watergate scandal.

Previously he had served as vice president of the country for eight months, following the resignation of Spiro Agnew. He was the first to be elected according to the procedure established in the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and upon assuming the presidency, he also became the first and so far only person to have exercised both the vice presidency and the presidency of the United States, without having been elected by the Electoral College. He was a member of the Republican Party.

During his presidency the Vietnam War ended and the Helsinki Agreements were signed. In terms of domestic policy, Ford faced the worst economic outlook since the Great Depression of 1929: during his years in office, the country went into recession and there was increasing inflation, one of its most controversial decisions was to pardon the President Richard Nixon, involved in the so-called Watergate Scandal. In 1976 Ford would defeat Ronald Reagan in the nomination of the Republican Party, but would lose by a narrow margin before the democrat Jimmy Carter in the presidential elections of that year.

Often described as unwise, his predecessor Lyndon B Johnson said Ford was “unable to chew gum and walk at the same time.” After his years in office, Ford continued to participate in the Republican Party. . After suffering health problems he died at home on December 26, 2006, at 93 years old. His presidential term, which lasted 895 days, is the shortest of the presidents of the United States who did not die while in office.
