Ronald Reagan ran for a second presidential term in 1984 against former Vice President Walter Mondale. Reagan attended Dixon High School in Illinois and was commonly referred to as Dixon’s favorite son. The family settled in Dixon in 1920 and Reagan often regarded his childhood there in the most positive light. Spectator’s of Reagan’s life in Dixon suggested that the things that made him a beloved President were begun in the small town and shaped his approachable nature.
