ANSWER TO TRIVIA: William Henry Harrison took the oath of office on a cold day in March. Ridiculed for his supposed lack of intellect, he felt compelled to give a two hour inaugural address, outside, without a coat or hat. He caught a cold, it turned to pneumonia, and he died a few months later, the first president to die in Office. His VP John Tyler, was at home allegedly playing marbles when he learned Harrison had died. He went to Washington, where there were no clear rules on succession. Many thought there had to be a new election. His secretary of State, Daniel Webster told Tyler that all executive decisions would be make by vote of the cabinet. Tyler told him to go to hell. Tyler remained president for three plus years. He refused to nominate a VP. The Whigs threw him out of the Whig party a few months after he became president.
