President Ford's Life and Times

The New York Times offers up this interactive feature on the life of America's 38th President.

Meanwhile, the Ford Presidential Library offers up an old fashioned print version of his life and times.

The Library also has some of Mr Ford's most famous quotes. Among them:

“I am a Ford, not a Lincoln.” -- Remarks after being sworn in as Vice President of the United States

“As we are a nation under God, so I am sworn to uphold our laws with the help of God. And I have sought such guidance and searched my own conscience with special diligence to determine the right thing for me to do with respect to my predecessor in this place, Richard Nixon, and his loyal wife and family. Theirs is an American tragedy in which we all have played a part. It could go on and on and on, or someone must write the end to it. I have concluded that only I can do that, and if I can, I must.” -- Remarks upon granting a pardon to former President Richard Nixon September 8, 1974
