Gardner stated, “Patricia Thelma Ryan was born the same year as Dick Nixon, on Saint Patrick’s Day” (Gardner 1952: 95). This brief sentence contained three errors! Mrs. Richard Nixon was born Thelma Catherine Ryan on March 16, 1912. She was older than her husband, who was born in January of the following year. Pat Ryan had adopted the name “Patricia” after her father died in 1929. After ten frustrating years in Yorba Linda, the Nixon family abandoned their failed lemon orchard and decided to return to Whittier.

Nixon also caught a fly ball in the softball game with a beer in his hand (Alsop 1960: 225, 233–4). Stewart Alsop’s dual biography was noteworthy for its engaging style and improved editorial control. He presented a relatively balanced assessment that allowed readers to decide who would be the more desirable candidate in 1960. On the other hand, William Costello’s The Facts About Nixon: An Unauthorized Biography (1960) was the first negative full-length account of Richard Nixon’s career. His cautionary piece was written in a popular style, with unattributed quotes and minimal citations.
