John Quincy Adams - 6th President of U.S. - son of John Adams, (2nd President). He served as Secretary of State under James Monroe, and is regarded as one of the greatest diplomats in American history. He reportedly had the highest IQ of any American President. He died in 1848 at the age of 81.
John Adams is hands down my favorite historical figure. The most just man to ever live.
