Ed Nixon grew up in the small Quaker community of Whittier, California, during the Great Depression. He was the youngest of the five Nixon brothers. Richard Nixon, 17 years older than Ed, was like a second father to him, as well as a teacher and mentor.
After receiving his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Duke and North Carolina State, Ed served our country as a Naval Aviator, helicopter flight instructor, and Assistant Professor of Naval Science at the University of Washington. In 1957, he married Gay Lynne Woods, who passed away in 2014.
