William Howard Taft

William Howard Taft is the only person in American history to serve as President of the United States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Even more unusual is that Taft was Chief Justice after being elected president, making him one of the few presidents to continue a public service career after his presidency.

The following are two short videos about William Taft. The first is the film shown at the Taft Education Center, so if you watch it here, you can skip it once at the park.
