List of Vice Presidents of the United States by age

This is a list of United States Vice Presidents by age. This table can be sorted to display United States Vice Presidents by name, order of office, date of birth, age at inauguration, length of retirement, or lifespan. Age at inauguration is determined by the day a vice-president assumed office, not the day of the election.

Two measures of longevity are given; this is to allow for the differing number of leap days occurring within the life of each Vice President. The first figure is the number of days between date of birth and date of death, allowing for leap days; in parentheses the same period given in years and days, with the years being the number of whole years the Vice President lived, and the days being the remaining number of days after his last birthday. Where the vice president in question is still living, the longevity is calculated up to October 25, 2014.

Overview[edit]

The minimum age required by the Constitution is 35 years. The youngest vice president to assume office was John C. Breckinridge, at the age of 36 years, 47 days. The oldest vice president to assume office was Alben W. Barkley, at the age of 71 years, 57 days. The median age of accession is roughly 53 years and 6 months, which is how old John Adams was at his inauguration.

The oldest living vice president is George H. W. Bush, born on June 12, 1924 (aged 90 years, 135 days), who is also the oldest living president. The youngest living vice president is Al Gore, born on March 31, 1948 (aged 66 years, 208 days). The incumbent vice president is Joe Biden, born on November 20, 1942 (aged 71 years, 339 days).

The longest-lived vice president was John Nance Garner, who died at the age of 98 years, 350 days. The shortest-lived vice president was Daniel D. Tompkins, who died at the age of 50 years, 355 days. In addition, seven vice presidents died while they were in office; those being: George Clinton (in 1812), Elbridge Gerry (in 1814), William R. King (in 1853), Henry Wilson (in 1875), Thomas A. Hendricks (in 1885), Garret Hobart (in 1899), and James S. Sherman (in 1912).
