Day in History
On August 9, 1974, one
day after the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon, Gerald R.
Ford is sworn in as president, making him the first man to assume the
presidency upon his predecessor's resignation. He was also the first
non-elected vice president and non-elected president, which made his ascendance
to the presidency all the more unique.
