About

Famous as the security guard who noticed unusual, break-in-like activity at Washington, D.C.'s Watergate office building, Wills spurred investigation into the Nixon presidency-ending event that came to be known as the Watergate Scandal.

Trivia

He appeared as himself in the movie adaptation of the Watergate-themed book All the President's Men.
