Washingtology knows you’re bummed that you don’t get enough Calvin Coolidge trivia.

Well, we’ll fix that:

Calvin Coolidge’s vice president, Charles G. Dawes, won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1925. What was his other claim to fame?

- He coined the phrase, “Give Peace a Chance.”

- He could recite the entire Constitution.

- He wrote a Top 10 hit song.

- He was a contortionist.

Just go to our Washingtology page, answer five trivia questions correctly and claim the title Washingtologist.
