The search for the funniest president continues! Rutherford Hayes was a good lawyer, a fine soldier and a world-class beard-grower. But was he also the funniest president?
Kristina Smith of the Hayes Presidential Library and Museums (located in beautiful Fremont, Ohio) get us acquainted with the 19th president and his sense of humor. We talk about Hayes' diary, his skill as a conversationalist, and the many ways he is exactly like your dad. Seriously, Hayes might be the ultimate dad president.
MUSIC: Hail Columbia, "The Bearded One" by Nat Pierce and his Orchestra, "My Ohio Home" by Jean Goldkette and his Orchestra
