Best Answer
  • Spiro T. Agnew (1969-1973) - resigned
  • Gerald R. Ford (1973-1974) - became President

Nixon had two Vice Presidents while he was in office from January 20, 1969, to August 9, 1974. His running mate in 1968 and 1972 was former Maryland governor Spiro Theodore Agnew. When Agnew resigned in on October 10, 1973, Nixon nominated Gerald Ford (the sitting House Minority Leader) as the 40th Vice President of the US, sworn in on December 6, 1973. When Nixon resigned in 1974 because of the Watergate scandal, Ford became the 38th President of the US (the first US President not elected President or Vice President). Ford subsequently pardoned Nixon, who lived another 20 years in a state of partial infamy.

Agnew was the first American of Greek decent to serve in this position. In October of 1973 Agnew was formerly charged with accepting bribes totaling more than one hundred thousand dollars while in office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland and as the Vice President. Agnew plead to one count of failure to report income in the year 1967 and was the only Vice President to ever resign because of criminal charges. His resignation foreshadowed the dark and scandalous nature of Nixon's own Presidency.

The resignation of Agnew and selection of Gerald Ford as the new Vice President marked the first time the provision of the 25th Amendment was implemented. Ford's own Vice Presidency was largely overshadowed by the criminal investigations of Richard Nixon who was later forced to resign over the Watergate scandal that elevated Ford from being the 40th Vice President to the 38th President of the United States.
Initially Spiro Agnew... later Gerald Ford
