Gerald Rudolph Ford (b. July 14, 1913 – d. December 26, 2006) was the 38th President of the United States. He served from 1974 until 1977. During his term, he tried to stop inflation with a failed program called "Whip Inflation Now", and encouraged Americans to limit their gas usage. He was sworn in upon Richard M. Nixon's resignation following the infamous "Watergate" scandal.
Gerald Ford was considered to be clumsy in some terms. In 1976, he tripped and fell down of the stairs of the White House, and in 1983, he fell and broke his hip while walking up the same stairs in the White House.
