Our ninth president was named for his maternal grandfather, William (last name: Bassett) and for his paternal uncle, Henry (last name: Harrison). Born in 1773, William Henry Harrison was only the second president to have had a middle name. He was the first, however, to die in office, which he did in 1841, barely a month after his inauguration, at which it's believed he caught pneumonia after giving a really long speech in the pouring rain.
