Jimmy Carter gets new title: oldest living former president

March 21, 2019, marks yet another milestone. While it is not his birthday, Carter becomes the oldest living former president in United States history.

At the age of 94 years and 172 days, he passes George H.W. Bush, who was 94 years, 171 days when he died last November.

There is some debate about whether he reaches that historic milestone Thursday or Friday. Based only on the hour of Bush’s death, Carter would surpass him after 10 p.m. Thursday. Carter’s 172nd day is Friday, but Bush died during the 171st day.

“We at the Carter Center sure are rooting for him and are grateful for his long life of service that has benefited millions of the world’s poorest people,” the center said in a statement.
