Curtis's first and last foray into politics occurred in 1973 when he was voted vice president of his Year Three class at Wollongong Public School in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia. He was the first American citizen to hold this office since the Second World War when the position was held by U.S. Army Brigadier General William F. Heavey of the 2d Engineer Special Brigade.[citation needed] As a result, he was nicknamed "Spiro" in honor of Spiro Agnew, U.S. Vice President at the time. He was also voted "Mom's Favorite" -- (1962–64, 1973, 1980–85, and 1997 [tie]).
