The paper gives a biographical account of the life of Richard M. Nixon from the time he served in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate and eventually as the President. It discusses the controversies surrounding his career, how they can be attributed to the current events of the time and examines in detail the Watergate scandal which finally led to his resignation in 1974.
From the Paper:"As a House member, Nixon worked on a committee that that started groundwork for the Marshall Plan, which was a plan to come up with a way to rebuild Europe after the devastation caused by World War II. Nixon was also member House Committee on Un-American Activities. This committee investigated Communist influence inside and outside of government. In 1948, he also helped fan fires of "McCarthism" when he was a part of the committee's investigation of Alger Hiss. Hiss was accused of passing secrets to the Soviet Union, which he denied the charges, and many members of the committee wanted to end the hearings."
