By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Richard M. Nixon was the 37th President of the United States. He was born in Yorba Linda, California, on January 9, 1913. He was born into hard times. His family didn't have a lot. Richard spent much of his childhood struggling. His hard childhood would have big effects. It helped him sometimes. It also hurt him.
 
2     Nixon had four brothers. His brother Arthur died after a short illness. His older brother, Harold, died in 1933. He died of tuberculosis. The family had a history of tuberculosis. Nixon was thought to have the disease, too. At first, he wasn't allowed to play sports. Later, though, he played football.
