I think it was Richard Nixon.

It was Bush. Nixon never lost an actual political race (though he lost a race for President of student council) before 1960, and loss only one race after that, 1962.

George Bush, on the other hand, ran for Texas Senator in 1964 and lost. He ran for Congressman in 1966 and won, winning re-election in 1968. In 1970, he ran again for Senate and lost, then was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations, elected RNC Chairman, appointed Envoy to China, and appointed DCI before entering four years of private life in 1977, and being elected Vice-President in 1980.

Therefore, the answer is George HW Bush.

Who is the only major party presidential candidate not to have a biography written about him?

Just for the fun of it, summer 2014 reading: I am taking college courses both in July & did in May. I have read all of the material for those. Besides that I read Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story & the book on Kennedy & Nixon by Chris Matthews both cover to cover & before that One Last Kiss: The Chris Coleman Story. All very informative & entertaining books. I have started Rendevouz With Destiny By Craig Shirley.

The last one not to do so in the traditional format (ie as a written report) rather than hold a speech, if that is what you meant, was Big Bill Taft.

EDIT: lol.

Ok, another hint:

The Pope was Pius IX, so this president was alive between 1846 and 1878.

Were they still in office?

Because from what I remember, Wilson was the first sitting president to meet with the Pope...

If it's actually FORMER Presidents... it's who was out of office at the time and still alive...
