Jimmy Carter, born on October 1, 1924, served as the 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981. Before his presidency, Carter had a distinguished career in the Navy and as the Governor of Georgia. As President, Carter emphasized human rights and diplomacy, playing a key role in the Camp David Accords, which brokered peace between Egypt and Israel in 1978. Despite these achievements, his presidency faced challenges, including an energy crisis, economic struggles, and the Iranian Revolution that led to the Iran hostage crisis.

Carter's commitment to environmental conservation resulted in the creation of the Department of Energy and the establishment of the Superfund program. However, his tenure was marred by high inflation and the Iran hostage crisis, contributing to his defeat in the 1980 election against Ronald Reagan. Post-presidency, Carter became a notable humanitarian, involved in various philanthropic efforts through the Carter Center, and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his dedication to conflict resolution and human rights.
