Nixon Tape Recorder - Watergate

President Nixon had a tape recorder in the Oval Office. He used that device to record many of his conversations with various people on various topics. The recorder was often running as the President discussed an event—known as the "Watergate Break-in"—with several of his key advisors.

The Nixon tape recorder, depicted in this image, ultimately led to the President's resignation since the tapes recorded by the device revealed what he knew, or didn't know, about the Watergate break-in and its cover-up.

The recorder is on display at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum as part of its Watergate Exhibit.
