Big Bill ~ Our 27th President

I was born in Ohio and studied at Yale College.  

I then continued my studies at Cincinnati Law School and worked as a Lawyer, Politician, and statesman before I was elected president.  

I helped New Mexico and Arizona to join the United States, becoming the 47th and 48thstates.  

I had the nickname “Big Bill” because I weighed 332 pounds.   

I died of a heart attack when I was 72 and my funeral was the first to be broadcasted on the radio. 

Who am I?

William Howard Taft

27th President of the United States
In Office
