Today is President's Day (for those of you who are unaware).
The first president I saw in person was Richard Nixon in 1972 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. I attended the opening of the Nixon Library in 1990 in Yorba Linda, California.

The Nixons are in SS-100-X, the presidential limousine JFK was riding in Dallas. White House Photo.
Since then, I have seen in person several others:
Gerald R. Ford (in Fresno, Kansas City and Yorba Linda)
Ronald Reagan (I met him in 1977, but have seen him many times, including at the White House)
George H. W. Bush (in Detroit, Dallas and Yorba Linda)
George W. Bush (before he entered politics in Detroit)
Happy President's Day!
