The most anonymous vice president of them all

William King, elected vice president under Franklin Pierce in 1852, was the only man in history not given the chance to prove the harmlessness of his particular office. A mere forty-five days after he took office – in Cuba, the only man to be sworn in as vice president in a foreign country – he died, on April 18, 1853. His death came so quickly that he never even had the opportunity of presiding over the Senate, the only job prescribed for vice presidents by the Constitution.
