Richard Nixon was the 37th president of the United States of America, serving from January 20, 1969, to his resignation on August 9, 1974. President Nixon was California's native son - the only person born and raised in Southern California to serve our nation's highest office. His rise in political life was meteoric; within 10 years, Nixon was twice elected to the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the vice presidency.
