Richard Milhous Nixon (9 January, 1913 - 10 February, 1979) was a Senator-candidate of the Republician Party in 1950, however he was defeated by Democrat candidate Orson Welles. Afterwards, Nixon turned away from politics and devoted himself to business. From his savings, he founded the Nixoil company, which he ran until the early-1970s. However, the company was unsuccessful, and Nixon slowly faded into poverty. He sold the company to Texaco in 1973, and retired into a small home in New York.
His health quickly faded, and he died in a series of strokes at the age of 66.
