          William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 – April 4, 1841)

Harrison was 68 years, 23 days old when he elected the ninth President of the
United States (1841), the oldest to be elected to the office until Roland Reagan
in 1980. He died on his 32nd day in office of complications from pneumonia, thus
serving the shortest tenure in U.S. presidential history.
