    (May 12, 1939-February 10, 2003)
    Born in Covington, Kentucky
    Press Secretary for Richard Nixon (1969-74)
    He was a perfectionist who was hard on his staff.
    Describing his contentious relations with reporters, the Washington Post called him 'the White House press corps' human pin cushion.'
    He famously dismissed Watergate as a 'third-rate burglary.'
    He called Woodward and Bernstein's Watergate coverage 'shoddy journalism' and 'character assassination.'
    After having to admit that White House officials were involved in Watergate, he dismissed his earlier denials with 'This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative.'
    He worked as a skipper on Disneyland's Jungle Cruise attraction.
    He was the youngest White House press secretary in history.
    He was named one of the 10 outstanding young men in America by the Jaycees (1970).
    Asked if he would apologize for his comments about Woodward and Bernstein, he said, 'Yes, I would apologize.... When we're wrong, we're wrong.'
    He remained loyal to Nixon after the president's resignation, sharing the plane that took Nixon to San Clemente as Ford was being sworn in.
