Spiro T. Agnew, who rose from PTA president to vice president only to resign in disgrace, was buried beneath an oak tree in Timonium with no mention of the end to his political career in 1973. There were no ex-presidents among the mourners at the suburban Baltimore cemetery and almost no news media coverage. The 77-year-old former Maryland governor, who became President Nixon’s strident point man, died of leukemia.
