After serving himself as the 36th Vice President under the Eisenhower administration from 1953 to 1961, Nixon was elected president in 1968. His vice president was Spiro Agnew, who served from the inauguration until October 10, 1973. Agnew resigned amidst charges of tax evasion linked to allegations that he accepted $100,000 in bribes. He was succeeded by Gerald Ford, then Speaker of the House of Representatives. Ford served for less than a year in this capacity and took the office of the presidency on August 9, 1974. He became the first and only person sworn in as president to not be elected as either president or vice president.
