Former California State Senator and Vice President of the United States during the Eisenhower administration, Richard M. Nixon ran for the U.S. presidency in 1968 under the Republican Party, defeating Democrat Hubert Humphrey, making him the 37th President of the United States. During his time in office, Nixon accomplished a great deal in equality and environmental awareness in which he aided in the desegregation of the U.S. school system and established the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, these accomplishments were soon overshadowed by the Watergate Scandal of 1972 that highlighted the wrongdoing of his administration, which caused him to resign in his second term.
