^ Ulysses S. Grant (1869-1877) Although Grant's reputed drunkenness may be an arguable point, there is no question that his two terms in office amounted to an eight year hangover. Rutherford B. Hayes (1877-1881) In the days of the wild, wild west, we even had a president who looked like this. James A. Garfield (1881) Garfield was assassinated before serving one year as president. He was a cultured, widely read man who. legend has it. could turn handstands as a grown man and was in fact doing so only an hour before he was shot. He also had eyes like Paul Newman. Chester Alan Arthur (1881-1885) Garfield was succeeded by a civil servant who looked like a walrus, wore fur coats and whose main desires as president were to lower tariffs and raise sideburns.
