President Warren G Harding
380 Mt Vernon Avenue
Marion, Ohio 43302
Voice: 740-387-9630

Our twenty-ninth president was born on November 2, 1865 in Corsica (now Blooming Grove), Ohio. In his teens, he and his family moved to Caledonia, Ohio. While there, Harding learned about journalism and printing. He became a student at Ohio Central College learning about newspaper trade.

After graduating, Harding moved to Marion, Ohio and bought his own newspaper company. He revamped the newspaper to support the Republican Party. Before too long, he was elected to the Ohio State Senate in 1899. Four years later, he became Lieutenant Governor of Ohio. He ran for Governor as a Republican, but lost. In 1914, Harding was elected to the U.S. Senate, and served until he was elected President of the United States, the first president to be elected while still a Senator.

During his presidency, Warren G. Harding established peace treaties with Germany, Austria, and Hungary. This act formally ended World War I for the United States. Afterwards, he established the Veterans’ Bureau. He also created the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, as well as the Revenue Act of 1921. The Teapot Dome Scandal also took place during his presidency.

Harding appointed many of his old allies to higher political positions. These people often used their powers to steal from the Government. Although he knew about these acts, Harding did nothing.

In June of 1923, Warren G. Harding went on the “Voyage of Understanding,” where he planned to travel across the country to meet ordinary people in America. During this trip, he developed what seemed to be a case of food poisoning. After giving his final speech in Seattle, he developed pneumonia. After reaching San Francisco, he died. It is uncertain what actually caused his death. Harding died on August 2, 1923.
