Wait, what about Harding or whoever in 1920?

And FDR didn't die during his term from 1940, either.

Please Note I'm a Canadian. I get points just for knowing Harding's name, even if I didnt' know what happened to him. And I'm still right about FDR =)

    Roosevelt didn't die during his 1940 term, but he did die in office. Harding died in 1923 and was succeeded by the vice president, Calvin Coolidge.

    Harding counts from the 1920 election. He died 1923. There is a rumor that his wife poisoned him. And if I remember, he stood a good chance of being impeached due to the teapot scandal of the time.

    FDR did die in office, just not the 1940-44 term having died April 12, 1945
