On the morning of August 9, 1974 Gerald Rudolph Ford walked the halls of The White House as Vice President, and that evening as the 38th President of the United States of America. President Ford had not campaigned for either the Vice Presidency or Presidency but following President Richard Nixon’s resignation, President Ford acknowledged that he “had not sought this enormous responsibility, but will not shirk it”.

President Ford historic quote: “I am indebted to no man, but to one woman, my dear wife”.
