As we mentioned above, VP Truman became president when President FDR died in 1945. He was not well known and it must have been quite a task to follow a political giant of the 20th century.
VP Ford became president when President Nixon resigned in 1974. He is the only man never elected to the office.
They were both Midwestern men, of great integrity and character.
