Former President Jimmy Carter has set a new record. President Carter is now the oldest living former president in United States history.
At the age of 94 years and 172 days, he passed George H.W. Bush, who was 94 years, 171 days when he died last November.
Just a few former presidents have lived past the 90-year mark, including former President Ronald Reagan, Carter's successor, who lived to be 93.
Carter has remained active since leaving the White House in 1981, creating the Carter Center, his human rights and anti-poverty organization -- and becoming involved with Habitat for Humanity.
