Famous Ancestor Of The Week: Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe III on 19 August 1946 in Hope, Hempstead, Arkansas. His father William Jefferson Blythe, Jr. was killed three months before his son's birth in an auto accident. When Bill was fourteen years old, he adopted the surname of his stepfather, Roger Clinton.

He graduated with a law degree from Yale University in 1973 and married fellow Yale law classmate Hillary Rodham in 1975. Their only daughter Chelsea was born in 1980. Clinton served two terms as governor of Arkansas.

In 1992 Clinton was elected as the 42nd president of the U.S. Despite a scandal with a Washington intern that led to impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice, Clinton was acquitted by the Senate and left office at the end of his second term with the highest end-of-approval rating since WWII.
