Heaviest U.S. President

February 20, 2012 by staff 

Heaviest U.S. President, William Howard Taft (Sept. 15, 1857 to Mar. 8, 1930) weighed between 300 and 350 lbs. Taft was the last president to keep a cow on the White House lawn for fresh milk, and was the only person in U.S. history to have been both president and chief justice.

NOTE: Taft was a very large man — weighing between 300 and 350 pounds. It has been reported that when President Taft was vacationing in Cape May, New Jersey, reporters put up a sign that read: “No swimming — President Taft is using the Atlantic.”
