Richard Nixon
When Richard Nixon died on April 22, 1994, at the age of 81, The Post's Martin Weil and Eleanor Randolph captured the life of America's tragic political figure by describing him as "a polarizing figure who won a record landslide and resigned in disgrace 21 months later." The 37th president of the United States resigned in disgrace on Aug. 9, 1974, because of public and political pressures created by the Watergate scandal.
