William Howard Taft - Harris and Ewing

Als Nachfolger von Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) war William Howard Taft (15. September 1857 – 8. März 1930) 27. US-Präsident von 1909 bis 1913.

In 1900, President William McKinley appointed Taft Governor-General of the Philippines. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt appointed Taft Secretary of War in an effort to groom Taft, then his close political ally, into his handpicked presidential successor. Taft assumed a prominent role in problem solving, assuming on some occasions the role of acting Secretary of State, while declining repeated offers from Roosevelt to serve on the Supreme Court.
