Placeholder Image
On August 8, 1974, President Richard M. Nixon announced his resignation, effective at noon the next day. Forty years later, the saga of Nixon’s rise and fall remains stranger than fiction-and more interesting, too. In 1960, then Vice President Nixon lost a close race for president to youthful Senator John F. Kennedy.
