Spiro Agnew, the 39th vice president of the United States under Richard Nixon, was a frequent visitor to Ocean City for over three decades. He maintained a second home in the resort for many years.
In the year following his forced resignation from office, Agnew could be seen playing tennis on the local courts or dining with friends in Ocean City’s restaurants. Agnew, right, is pictured with his wife, Judy, and Fred Musiani, owner of the former Angelo’s Restaurant on Philadelphia Ave.
Agnew died of leukemia at the Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin on Sept. 17, 1996; He is buried at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Timonium, Md.
