Born in 1857 in Cincinnati, Ohio, into the powerful Taft family, Taft graduated from Yale College in 1878, and later graduated from Cincinnati Law School in 1880. After his graduation from Cincinnati Law School, Taft worked in a number of local legal positions until being appointed a judge to the Ohio Superior Court in 1887. Taft was then appointed Solicitor General of the United States in 1890 and a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 1891.

In 1900, President William McKinley appointed Taft Governor-General of the Philippines. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt, then a political ally of Taft, appointed Taft Secretary of War in order to groom Taft as his successor to the presidency.
Riding a wave of popular support of President, and fellow Republican, Theodore Roosevelt, Taft won an easy victory in his 1908 bid for the presidency. In his first and only term, President Taft emphasized trust-busting, civil service reform, strengthening the Interstate Commerce Commission, improving the performance of the postal service, and the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment as part of his domestic agenda.

Abroad, Taft sought to further the economic development of undeveloped nations in Latin America and Asia through the method that he termed "Dollar Diplomacy." However, Taft often managed to alienate his own key constituencies, and was overwhelmingly defeated for a second term in the president election of 1912.
After leaving office, Taft spent his time in academia, arbitration, and seeking world peace through his self-founded League to Enforce Peace. In 1921, President Warren G. Harding appointed Taft Chief Justice of the United States, fulfilling Taft's lifelong dream. Taft served in this capacity until his death in 1930.

Weighing over 300 pounds on average, Taft was physically the heaviest American president ever elected.[1] Taft is also, to date, the last U.S. president to have facial hair while in office.[1]

Formed in 2014, The Greeting Committee consists of vocalist Addie Sartino, guitarist Brandon Yangmi, bassist Pierce Turcotte, and drummer Austin Fraser, half of which are still in high school. The band quickly emerged into the music scene after catching the attention of Lazlo Geiger, a radio personality from 96.5 The Buzz (KRBZ Kansas City).

The Greeting Committee's debut EP, titled 'It's Not All That Bad,' captivated the hearts of listeners with its intelligent musicality and meaningful lyrics. "If you want smart, credible music with a raw energy that inspires, you just found it," says Geiger. The EP was re-released through Harvest Records in October of 2015, leading The Greeting Committee to land tours with bands such as KITTEN, Saint Motel, and The Mowgli's, as well as festivals such as Mo Pop in Detroit and the 25th anniversary Lollapalooza in Chicago.

"We're working to create a collaborative environment with our surroundings," explains Sartino, "To us, The Greeting Committee is an art project influenced by the listeners. The music is merely the soundtrack to something much greater." After recording in Capitol Studio B in August 2016, the band plans to release new music in the near future.
