President William H Taft
2038 Auburn Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio 45219
Voice: 513-684-3262

Our twenty-seventh president was born on September 15, 1857 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was the son of a distinguished judge. Taft graduated from Yale, and moved back to Cincinnati to practice law. He then became part of Republican judiciary appointments. Taft much preferred law to politics, and was appointed Federal circuit judge at 34. His aspirations were to become a Supreme Court member.

He later served as Secretary of War after being appointed to the position by President Roosevelt. Taft was then elected president of the United States. During his presidency, he developed an income tax system and a postal savings system. He was also behind a disastrous agreement with Canada, which failed. In 1912, Taft was re-nominated, but lost.

After leaving the office, William Howard Taft served as a Professor of Law at Yale. Eventually, President Harding made him Chief Justice of the United States. Taft held this position until shortly before his death. He died on March 8, 1930.
