Spiro Agnew, American soldier and politician, 39th Vice President of the United States from 1969 until his resignation in 1973 (November 9, 1918 - September 17, 1996)was born in Baltimore, to an American-born mother and a Greek immigrant father. Spiro Theodore "Ted" Agnew is the second and most recent officeholder to resign the position of the vice presidency, after John C. Calhoun in 1832. Agnew attended Johns Hopkins University, graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law, and entered the United States Army in 1941. Agnew served as an officer during World War II, earning the Bronze Star, and was in 1951 recalled for service during the Korean War. He worked as an aide to U.S. Representative James Devereux before he was appointed to the Baltimore County Board of Zoning Appeals in 1957. In 1960, he lost an election for the Baltimore County Circuit Court, but in 1962 was elected Baltimore County Executive. In 1966, Agnew was elected the 55th Governor of Maryland, defeating his Democratic opponent George P. Mahoney and independent candidate Hyman A. Pressman. At the 1968 Republican National Convention, Agnew, who had been asked to place Richard Nixon's name in nomination, was selected as running mate by Nixon and his campaign staff. Agnew's centrist reputation interested Nixon; the law and order stance he had taken in the wake of civil unrest that year appealed to aides such as Pat Buchanan. Agnew made a number of gaffes during the campaign but his rhetoric pleased many Republicans and he may have made the difference in several key states. Nixon and Agnew defeated the Democratic ticket of incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey and his running mate, Senator Edmund Muskie from Maine. As Vice President of the United States, Agnew was often called upon to attack the administration's enemies and was an outspoken critic of the counter-culture and anti-war movements. In the years of his vice presidency, Agnew moved to the right, appealing to conservatives who were suspicious of moderate stances taken by Nixon. In the presidential election of 1972, Nixon and Agnew were reelected for a second term, defeating Senator George McGovern from South Dakota and former ambassador Sargent Shriver. Beginning in early 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on suspicion of conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew had accepted kickbacks from contractors during his time as Baltimore County executive and Governor of Maryland. The payments had continued into his time as vice president. On October 10, 1973, after months of maintaining his innocence, Agnew pleaded no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion and resigned from office. He was replaced by House Minority Leader Gerald Ford. Agnew spent the remainder of his life quietly, rarely making public appearances. He wrote a novel and a memoir defending his actions. Spiro Agnew died of undiagnosed acute leukemia aged 77 at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Maryland.

Earle Doud, American comedy writer and record producer (February 14, 1927 - October 19, 1998) was born in New York City. Earle Doud penned jokes for such television comics as Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, and Jonathan Winters and for the popular television series Father Knows Best in the 1950s and early '60s. His debut album, Sounds Funny, took a humorous look at sound effects. Doud's most successful outing was an album, The First Family, recorded on October 27, 1962, that poked fun at President John F. Kennedy's White House. Written and produced with Bob Booker and featuring Vaughn Meader as the President and Naomi Brossart as the First Lady, it was a phenomenal success, selling more than seven and a half million copies. Although a second volume, released in the spring of 1963, received an equally warm reception, it was pulled from the marketplace following Kennedy's assassination on November 22, 1963. The American presidency continued to be a source for Doud's humor, as he subsequently wrote and produced similar albums Lyndon Johnson's Lonely Hearts Club Band with Alen Robin in 1967 and The First Family Rides Again, which spoofed the Ronald Reagan era, in 1981. He also produced the albums Spiro T. Agnew Is a Riot, parodying Nixon's vice president in 1971, and Henry The First, featuring Kenneth Mars doing an uncanny Henry Kissinger impression in 1974. Earle Doud died in Los Angeles, California on October 19, 1998.
