Description  
William Howard Taft, 1857-1930, was the 27th President of the United States (1909-1913) and the 10th Chief Justice of the United States (1921-1930). He is unique in being the only person to have held both offices. Taft was elected President to succeed Theodore Roosevelt but he lost the following election to Woodrow Wilson, after Roosevelt had split the Republican vote by running as a third party candidate. When he lost the Presidency, he became a Professor of Law and Legal History at Yale Law School.
