(continuation) #9. William Henry Harrison On March 4, 1841, Harrison took the oath of office and then proceeded to deliver the longest inaugural address in the history of the Presidency, in the cold, without a coat, hat or gloves. The cold he came down with after this speech turned into pneumonia a few weeks later after getting caught outside during a rainstorm. Harrison died exactly one month into his term on April 4.
