Still Honoring Our Presidents

Presidents Day was yesterday, and in honor of our wonderful Presidents, we thought we would look up how many of them were lawyers. In fact, 25 of our 45 Presidents were lawyers, Harvard having the most Presidential graduates with four. Here is the complete list with some fun little tidbits about them. For instance, did you know, “the three best known Western name in China are Jesus Christ, Elvis Presley, and Richard Nixon”, and that Obama has a nerdy side enjoying comic books and Harry Potter!!

This got us thinking about what else the past Presidents had done. We found this list, which lists professions by number of Presidents. Common jobs were in Politics (probably a given), but there were also a number of educators, businessman, and journalists/writers. Many of our Presidents were Ambassadors, and there were even a few farmers. Do you know the number one profession? You will have to click to find out…it is quite interesting, recognizing our rich history!!
