The job of President takes a toll on people, and we can definitely see that in the pictures that are to follow.

That’s what we’re here for; to tell you what they were about, to see them before their Presidencies. This is Before They Took Office.

5. Ronald Reagan
This man was not only known for being the United States’ President from 1981 to 1989, but he was also an actor before running for office was even a thought. However, before that, Reagan was just a poor, young boy raised in small towns in Illinois. He was born February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois. He went to Dixon High School, found passions in sports, storytelling, and, of course, acting. He moved onto Eureka College, where he was a cheerleader and studied sociology and economics. He was involved in all sorts of things throughout school and earned the nickname “jack of all trades.” He then worked in radio and announced for several stations before finding a career as an actor in 1937. Despite his success, he decided to serve in the military and did so from 1942 until 1945. He became the President of the SAG, worked as an FBI informant in Hollywood, and did some TV acting, then worked as the Governor of California from 1967 until 1975. In 1980, became President. He served from 1981 until 1989.

4. George H.W. Bush
This man was the OG George Bush and served as President from 1989 to 1993. But, he too was young once. The Papa Bush was born June 12, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, but he grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut. He attended Phillips Academy, where he held a bunch of leadership positions, which just shows that he was kind of meant to do what he did. After graduating, he joined the Navy and served in the Second World War. After returning from service, he attended Yale University graduated with a degree in economics. He became sold oil field equipment after graduating and later became president of the Zapata Offshore Company. In 1963, he entered politics and served in a bunch of positions, including the Director of the CIA for nearly a year. He then became Vice-President in 1980, under Ronald Reagan. He served two terms as Vice President, ran for President in 1988, won, and served from 1989 until 1993.

3. Bill Clinton
William Jefferson Clinton was born in Hope, Arkansas, on August 19, 1946, and was initially named William Jefferson Blythe III. His biological father passed in a car accident three months before his birth, and he took his stepfather’s surname when he was fifteen. They moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas in 1950, and Clinton went through his school years there. He gained an interest in law in high school, then attended the Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and it is there he earned a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service degree. He then went onto Oxford but did not graduate. He protested the Vietnam War, was called a draft-dodger and ended up going to Yale Law School. He went on to serve as the Governor of Arkansas, and then eventually made a run for President, which he ended up winning in 1992, and served two terms, from 1993 to 2001. The house attempted to and succeeded in impeaching him, but he was later acquitted. Oh, Bill.

2. George W. Bush
Here comes the W. He was born July 6, 1946, in New Haven, Connecticut, and is the son of 41st President, George H.W. Bush. His family moved to Texas, where he spent his formative years. He went to a boarding school in Massachusetts called Phillips Academy and was interested in baseball and cheerleading. He went on to Yale, where he graduated in 1968 with a Bachelors of Arts degree with a focus on history. In 1973, he started Harvard Business School and graduated with an MBA two years later. Fun fact: he’s the only U.S. President to have earned an MBA. He spent a bit of time in the Texas Air National Guard, established an oil company, and even served as a managing general partner for the famed Houson Rockets for five years. He became the Governor of Texas in 1995 and was reelected in 1999; however, he decided to run for President in 2000 and won. He served a whole eight years, through some pretty trying times, if we don’t say so ourselves. We mean, he almost died while choking on a pretzel and his Vice President accidentally shot somebody. Not to mention 9/11 and the “War on Terror.”
