Richard Nixon was the 37th President of the United States. Before becoming President, he was Vice-President for 8 years under Dwight Eisenhower. During his time as President, he ended the US involvement in the Vietnam war, started the Environmental Protection Agency, and brought POWs back to the US. In 1974, he resigned in disgrace after the Watergate Scandal. If he had not resigned, he would have been impeached. Nixon is the only President to resign.

As First Lady, Pat Nixon was known for her hard work and tireless energy. She was college educated, and was the first First Lady to earn a graduate degree. When Nixon ran for President, a campaign ad slogan was used during the election, “Pat for First Lady.”
