That would be Gerald Ford. He became VP under Nixon after Spiro Agnew resigned, and then ascended to President after Nixon resigned.
Washington was president by the majority of Congress.
Ford was both president and vice-president but was not elected to either office. Nelson Rockefeller served as vice president without being elected.
Thomas Jefferson served four years as vice-president and two terms as President. No other president that served two full terms was ever vice-president. Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge , Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson all served at least two years as vice president, became President and then were elected to one term of their own, but none served two full terms as President. Franklin Roosevelt ran for vice president but was not elected.
Washington's vice president was John Adams who was then elected to be the 2nd president of the US
Nobody ever was president who was not elected unless he was serving as vice-president when the President died or resigned. Gerald Ford, however, was appointed as vice-president and then became President when Nixon resigned.
Gerald Ford was the only president of the United States who was not elected president or vice president. He took over as vice president after Spiro Agnew resigned and served as vice president under Richard Nixon. When Nixon later resigned, he became the president.
This question first appeared in the "US Presidents" category, but it is doubtful that is where it belongs. No US vice president has ever been elected to an office in India. As far as vice presidents of India are concerned, 7 men who served as Vice President of India later became President or Acting President (one of the was both an Acting President and then later the elected President): Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan served as vice president under the first president of India, Rajendra Prasad and was elected as India's second president after Radhakrishnan retired. Zakir Hussain served as vice president under Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and was elected president when Radhakrishnan left office. Varahagiri Venkata Giri served as vice president under Zakir Hussain and was appointed acting president upon Husain's death. He resigned the office a few months later to take part in the presidential elections and was elected president 2 months later. Basappa Danappa Jatti was the vice president of India during President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed's term of office, and was sworn in as acting president upon Ahmed's death. Ramaswamy Venkataraman served as vice president under President Giani Zail Singh and was subsequently elected as the next president after Singh. Shankar Dayal Sharma served as vice president under President Ramaswamy Venkataraman and was subsequently elected as the next president after Venkataraman. Kocheril Raman Narayanan served as vice president under President Shankar Dayal Sharmaand was subsequently elected as the next president after Sharma.
George Washington, our first president.

Gerald R. Ford. He became Vice-President when Spiro Agnew resigned, and then President with Richard Nixon resigned.
There are no term limits to the election of a Vice president- unless they have served 2 terms as president in the united states.
The Vice President at that time was Walter Mondale. He served under Jimmy Carter and was elected in the 1976 election with Jimmy Carter, and served until 1981.
Yes, if they moved up from vice-president to president with less than two years to go in the term. Otherwise, they can not be re-elected if they are elected president once.
No. After World War II, he served in the House of Representatives. He was elected from the House to the Senate, and elected President out of the Senate.
He was never elected President. He served as Vice president under Nixon until Nixon resigned. He was in office as president from August 9, 1974 to January 20, 1977http://www.patriotstoolbox.org/america/presidents/geraldrford.htm
In 1952 Eisenhower was elected president and Nixon was elected vice-president.
14 - nine were vice-presidents that became president when the president died or resigned, and five served out their full terms as elected vice-president, then ran for president and won.
Certainly! There are many Vice-Presidents that have served as President, both because of the death of a president and because they were elected.
Gerald Ford replaced Spiro Agnew as Vice president and later replaced Richard Nixon as president.
Gerald Ford is the only person to my knowledge.
