SAR Compatriot Presidents of the United States

Warren Gamaliel Harding (29th President of the United States)

Warren Gamaliel Harding

Warren Gamaliel Harding was born near Blooming Grove, Ohio, on November 2, 1865. He graduated from Ohio Central College and went into newspaper work. Harding soon entered politics and became a state senator in 1899. Four years later, he was elected as lieutenant governor of Ohio. In 1910, he ran for governor but lost. In 1914, Harding was elected to the United States Senate, becoming Ohio’s first senator elected by popular vote. He served in the Senate from 1915 until his inauguration as president on March 4, 1921, becoming the first sitting senator to be elected as president of the United States.

Warren G. Harding joined the Ohio SAR on July 2, 1920. He was a descendant of Abraham Harding, Jr., who resided in Walhill, New York, at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. Abraham Harding, Jr., served as a lieutenant in the New York Militia. President Harding was invited to attend the thirty-fourth SAR National Congress held in Nashville, Tennessee.

President Harding was the sixth American president to die while in office. While traveling on a “voyage of understanding” through San Francisco, Harding died on August 2, 1923, at the age of fifty-seven. He is buried in Marion, Ohio.
