Gerald R. Ford was the 38th President of the United States (b. 1913). Ford became the first man to hold the nation's highest office by apointment rather than election. This honest, down-to-earth veteran of Congress was a unanimous choice during one of the darkest hours of the American Presidency -- to become first Vice President and then successor to Richard Nixon. Artifacts include: a frisbee from the 1976 Republican National Convention, a University of Oklahoma football helmet, Bicentennial golf putter, and a tennis racquet.
