On January 20, 1977, James "Jimmy" E. Carter Jr. and Walter F. Mondale were sworn in as the 39th President of the United States and the 42nd Vice President of the United States. The inauguration was conducted by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger and Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill and featured performances from notable musicians Linda Ronstadt and Aretha Franklin. Following the swearing-in ceremony, Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn became the first President and First Lady to forgo riding in a limo from the Capitol to the White House, instead choosing to walk the post-ceremony parade, despite the cold January weather.
