"Richard Nixon was ... the only person to appear on five national ballots - he carried California each time. At over 180 million votes, more people have voted for Richard Nixon than for any other U.S. politician. And he was the only president to resign from office."
“Native Son: Richard Nixon's Southern California,” is a unique map biography of the life of America's 37th president. Rich in design and thoroughly researched, Richard Nixon's life is traced from his birth in Yorba Linda throughout Southern California, and back to his final resting place just steps from his original birthplace.

After serving in the United States Navy under the command of Captain Rodney A.
