Warren G. Harding (1865-1923)
Twenty-Ninth President
Term of Office: 1921-1923

Warren G. Harding, a Republican, was elected president in 1920. His vice-presidential running mate was Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933). Together, they defeated James M. Cox (1870-1957), a Democrat and whose running-mate was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and the Socialist candidate, Eugene Victor Debs. The 1920 election is notable for the fact that this was the first presidential election in which women were allowed to vote.

A Harding campaign promise was, "Less government in business and more business in government." Unfortunately, scandal and corruption tainted his administration, resulting in what became known as the "Teapot Dome" oil reserves scandal. Harding died in office of a heart attack in 1923, whereupon his vice-president, Calvin Coolidge, assumed office.

Note the Cox, "I will crow in November" pin.
