Richard M. Nixon, 37th President of the United States (1969-1974) was born on today’s date in 1913.  Nixon & I are distant cousins on my father’s side, through both Nixon’s mother (8th cousins 2x removed) and his father (9th cousins 2x removed). The only president to resign the office, Nixon had previously served as a US representative and senator from California and as the 36th Vice President of the United States from 1953-1961 under President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
