Hannah Milhous Nixon (March 7, 1885 – September 30, 1967) was the mother of President Richard Nixon.
Richard Nixon described his mother as "a Quaker saint."<ref></ref> She is acknowledged to have exerted a tremendous effect on her son's outlook throughout his life. On the day Nixon left office, he publicly lauded his mother's influence, calling her a "saint," but surmised that no one would ever write a book about her.
