included the 1935-1945 blood pressure record of President Franklin D. Roosevelt as an early example of cuff sphygmomanometry. However, Roosevelt was not the first president in whom extreme hypertension was measured. In either October 1910 or January 1914, Dr James Marsh Jackson of Boston, Mass, found that President William Howard Taft's “blood pressure was 210.”
In 1910, Taft was just under 6 ft tall, weighed 330 lb (148.5 kg), and had severely symptomatic sleep apnea. At that time, Dr Jackson thought that Taft's heart was “weakened” and “in a very bad state.”
Thus, in contrast to Roosevelt's curious indifference to health, Taft actively engaged his most serious health problem, his weight. Also in contrast to Roosevelt, Taft lived for 17 years after leaving the White House. He had the most distinguished postpresidential career in history, becoming Chief Justice of the United States in 1923.
