William Howard Taft

This guy, William Howard Taft, was the 27th U.S. President. He was born on September 15, 1857, and he will be the subject of the masthead on the 15th of this month, in my ongoing effort to produce a caricature of every person to serve that post and highlight them on their birthday.

Taft was the only man to serve as both a U.S. President and a Supreme Court Chief Justice.

He was a large dude, tipping the scales at around 340 during his presidency. Within a year of leaving office, however, he was able to drop 80 pounds.

He had a pretty epic moustache, too.
