 Ronald Wilson Reagan
Full Name: Ronald Wilson Reagan
Born: Feb. 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois
Died: June 5, 2004 in Los Angeles, California
Ronald Wilson Reagan was an actor who served as Governor of California (1967-75) before becoming the 40th President of the United States (1981-89); Reagan is probably the most admired president in modern history among conservatives, who claim he won the Cold War, though other Americans recall him as a militaristic (Reagan is especially associated with “star wars”), anti-environmental kook (he apparently became senile before he left office) whose economic policies are best summed up by the terms “voodoo economics” and “trickle-down economics.”
