Warren Gamaliel Harding (November 2, 1865 – August 2, 1923) was an American politician and the 29th President of the United States, from 1921 to 1923, when he became the sixth president to die in office. His political leanings were conservative, which enabled him to become the compromise choice at the 1920 Republican National Convention. In the 1920 election, he coined the phrase "return to normalcy" and defeated his Democratic opponent, James M. Cox, in a landslide, 60.36% to 34.19%.

Harding died in San Francisco, California on August 2, 1923, before he had completed his first term. His presidency is remembered for its corruption, and Harding's inability to stop it. Indeed, even Harding admitted he was not fit for the office.
