Wilson Livingood

Wilson (Bill) Livingood (born 1936), a 33-year veteran of the United States Secret Service, was elected Sergeant at Arms of the United States House of Representatives on January 4, 1995, for the 104th Congress, and subsequently re-elected through the current Congress.[1][2]

From Philadelphia, he grew up in Texas and Michigan, attending Michigan State University while working as a police officer, and was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He joined the Secret Service in 1962, and was assigned to then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson's security detail. He guarded Johnson's daughter Lynda Bird from 1963-65, and later spent 11 years on Air Force One.

He said repeatedly in 1995 when he was hired as House Sergeant at Arms that he considers himself apolitical and nonpartisan.[3] Livingood is the 36th person to hold the post since the U.S. House of Representatives first met in New York City in 1789.
