Calvin Coolidge was a tightwad. His election slogan was "Keep cool with Coolidge", and he served ice water to White House visitors.
Coolidge was the only President to have been born on the Fourth of July.
Coolidge once shook the hands on 1900 people in thirty-four minutes.
Coolidge has the distinction of having one of the more unique swearing-in ceremonies, because the oath was administered by his father, who was a Notary Public and Justice of the Peace.
