美国总统与最高法院首席法官威廉.豪沃.塔夫脱 (William Howard Taft) 出生

你知道有时候同一家人会从事相同的职业吗?威廉.豪沃.塔夫脱 (William Howard Taft) 的父亲是一个政治家,而他的儿子也理所当然成为政治家。曾经担任过美国总统与最高法院首席法官的威廉.豪沃.塔夫脱于1857915日出生在俄亥俄州的辛辛那提市。他的父亲是一个着名的共和党员,曾经在格兰特总统在位时担任「战争部部长」。小塔夫脱后来自然也担任过这个职位。他的政治生涯开始于俄亥俄州,后来在1880年成为一个律师。

Do you think careers sometimes run in a family? William Howard Taft's father was a politician and his son would be too. Taft, United States president and chief justice of the Supreme Court, was born on September 15, 1857, in Cincinnati, Ohio. His father, a prominent Republican, served as secretary of war under President Ulysses S. Grant. The younger Taft would eventually fill the same position. He started his political career in Ohio, shortly after becoming a lawyer in 1880.
