Question: Who was the last U.S. president to have facial hair while in office?

Answer: William Howard Taft, who boasted a luxurious mustache. He was replaced in 1913 by clean-shaven Woodrow Wilson, and no president since then has sported facial hair while in office, a departure from historical norms. From 1861 to 1913, nine of 11 U.S. presidents had beards, mustaches, mutton chops, or some combination of those.
