Rutherford B. Hayes. Lost the popular vote in 1876 by a few
hundred thousand, but had one more elecoral vote than Tilden.
Voting irregularities in Florida, among other states.
To keep this on topic: the site of Hayes' boyhood home is a
few doors from the bookstore where I found the B&L in a
DJ for $2. They tore down Hayes' birthplace and built a gas
station a few decades ago.
He died in 1893, never having owned a ML edition.
