A trip to the last century!


1980: Cowboy Ronald Reagan

In 1980, former Hollywood actor and California governor Ronald Reagan was elected the 40th president of the United States. The 69-year-old, who had secured nearly 51% of the popular vote, was the oldest person to be elected president. A few months after his inauguration, the Republican leader was shot by John Hinckley Jr. This image, taken by photographer Michael Evans in 1976, shows the soon-to-be president wearing a cowboy hat.
