InfoDwight David Eisenhower II (born 1948) is the grandson of the 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower. His father is the former U.S. ambassador to Belgium, John Eisenhower. After assuming the presidency in 1953, his grandfather named the presidential mountain retreat Camp David after him. On December 22, 1968, he married Julie Nixon, the daughter of the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon, who served as his grandfather's Vice-President.

A graduate of Amherst College, he served as an officer in the United States Naval Reserve[1] before earning his J.D. from The George Washington University Law School in 1976. He is today a public policy fellow at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, author, and co-chair of the Foreign Policy Research Institute's History Institute for Teachers. From 2001–2003 he was editor of the journal Orbis published by FPRI.

He and Julie live in Pennsylvania, where they raised three children: Jennie, Alex, and Melanie.

The Creedence Clearwater Revival song "Fortunate Son" was inspired by David Eisenhower. John Fogerty believed that Eisenhower received preferential treatment because he was born into a famous family and married to the daughter of the President. Eisenhower had enlisted in the Navy and served for three years, and had seen no action.[2] National Lampoon writer Doug Kenney poked fun at Eisenhower, making him the "spokesman" for a parody condom advertisement.

The Eisenhowers have three children:

Jennie Elizabeth Eisenhower (b. 1978), an actress
Alexander Richard Eisenhower (b. 1980)
Melanie Catherine Eisenhower (b. 1984)
