an interesting note...

President Gerald R. Ford was the only president who was never elected to the White House Executive Branch1 - he was nominated to fill the Vice Presidency after Spiro Agnew resigned while facing federal felony corruption charges, then after Richard Nixon resigned as President (another first!) while facing impeachment, Ford ascended to the Presidency.

but more importantly Gerald R. Ford is the only president who i have an autographed photo of. (back in the day as a wee lad in school I sent off a letter to the President, and got a nice 8x10 autographed photo in return)
