Q and A Banner - #3 (World Records-1)

William Howard Taft, the 27th President, was known as "Big Bill," and for a good reason. He was 6' 2" tall and weighed over 330 pounds. He was so large, in fact, that he once got stuck in the White House bath tub, which had to be replaced with a special oversized version.

William Howard TAFT was the largest U.S. President. This photo, taken in 1996, features a replica of the bathtub built for him. The original ceramic tub was cracked during removal from the White House. For a reference as to the scale, boy, Jacob (age 10) is visible in the background looking at a display case.
