2005: Rose Mary Woods, who was President Richard Nixon's secretary from his days in Congress in 1951 through the end of his political career, dies at the age of 87 in Alliance, Ohio. Woods became a Watergate figure when she claimed responsibility in a 1974 grand jury testimony for inadvertently erasing up to five minutes of the 18 1/2 minute gap in a June 20, 1972, audio tape recorded in the Oval Office.
