Former Nixon aide Egil "Bud" Krogh Jr. passed on January 18.

John Ehrlichman put Bud in charge of the Plumbers, a clandestine group charged with (usually illegally) plugging leaks in the Nixon administration. Bud approved the 1971 break-in of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office after the Pentagon Papers leaked. (I'm sure it was a "perfect" break-in...) After the Watergate scandal finally came to light, Krogh was imprisoned for 4-1/2 months for his role in the illegal activities.

But I first met him in 2010 during a talk at the National Archives about a famous Nixon-Elvis meeting. Elvis Presley had popped in to the city to visit Nixon in 1970. Elvis wanted to present Nixon a special revolver and wanted a badge in exchange ("do me a favor"). Bud, who had Elvis songs played at his wedding, dropped everything to arrange the meeting. The National Archives says the photo of Elvis and Nixon together is their top selling photograph. Bud wrote a book -- "The Day Elvis Met Nixon" -- about the episode and sent me an autographed copy.

Journalist Jim Lehrer, passed on January 23. He joined Robert MacNeil for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour (1975-1995) and the PBS NewsHour (1995-2011). The last time I saw him was at a Library of Congress presentation on the history of PBS. The panel included Dick Cavett and as seen here, Cokie Roberts (who passed in September, 2019).
