William Howard Taft (September 15, 1857 - March 8, 1930) was the 27th President of the United States from 1909 to 1913 and later the tenth Chief Justice of the United States from 1921 to 1930. He is the most obese man to ever hold the office of the presidency. He is also the only person to have served in both of these offices. He appeared in a photo in the 2005 Disney biographical sports film The Greatest Game Ever Played.

At the Disney parks, Taft has appeared in The Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom and appears in photos aboard the S.S. Columbia at Tokyo DisneySea's American Waterfront as a special guest at the ship's Maiden Voyage celebrations.
