While visiting Austria in 1975, President Gerald Ford lost his footing on the Air Force One stairs. This awkward moment, along with several other public gaffes—wild golf shots and errant tennis volleys (bonking spectators and playing partners), plus additional stumbling incidents—garnered the former University of Michigan football player his dubious reputation as clumsy and even somewhat dimwitted.  In reality, Ford graced the American presidency with dignity, intelligence, and honesty, much needed after the demise of Richard Nixon.
