DYK the only President in American history to never be elected was Gerald Ford.

During Richard Nixon's administration, upon his current vice-president's resignation, Nixon appointed Ford as his new VP. When Nixon himself resigned after Watergate, Ford assumed the presidency.

By contrast, all other cases of VPs assuming the role had previously been elected vice-president by the people in an election.
