Archibald Cox

Age: 92

special prosecutor who was fired by the Nixon administration in the Oct. 1973 “Saturday Night Massacre.” Two months after Cox joined the Watergate investigation, it was revealed that Nixon had secretly recorded phone conversations about the break-in. The White House refused Cox's repeated requests to relinquish the tapes, and Cox turned to the courts. Nixon defied a court order to surrender the tapes, and Cox was fired.
