On August 19, 1946, in Hope (Hempstead County), Virginia Cassidy Blythe gave birth to a son. She and her husband, William Jefferson Blythe III, who was killed in a car accident before the boy’s birth, named the child William Jefferson Blythe IV. A few years later, when his mother remarried, the boy, shown here at approximately age four, changed his name to reflect his new stepfather’s, becoming William Jefferson Clinton. Bill Clinton would grow up to be the forty-second president of the United States.
