Gerald R. Ford, 1913 -2006

Shown above is an autographed Inaugural First Day Cover postmarked August 9, 1974 from the Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection.

After Richard Nixon became the first President to resign from office, Ford was sworn in as President on the same day Nixon left the White House.

Ford died yesterday at the age of 93.

The Gerald Ford Library and Museum reports the late president was an avid stamp collector.
