Biographical Note

William M. Miller was born in the Gulf Coast town of Pascagoula, Mississippi on 20 July 1909. He received the nickname “Fishbait” as a young boy in a comparison between his small size and the shrimp used as lures to hook fish. During high school, his energy and personality impressed a local attorney, William Colmer, who provided financial assistance for his time at Perkinston Junior College. Colmer hired Miller as a drive during his first congressional campaign in 1932 and then arranged for the young man to become a clerk in the House Post Office. He married Mabel Breeland in 1937 and together they had a daughter, Sarah Patsy.

After serving as messenger to the Doorkeeper and Assistant Sergeant at Arms, the Democratic Caucus elected Miller Doorkeeper in 1949, a post he retained until 1953 when he became Minority Doorkeeper after the Republicans obtained control of the chamber. Miller recovered his former position in 1955 and held onto it until 1974 when the caucus selected James Malloy.

During Fishbait Miller’s tenure as Doorkeeper, the post was one of five officials elected by the majority of House members. Miller had approximately 350 employees under his management, including doormen on floor and galley levels, messengers, pages, barbers, retiring room attendants, and janitors. He was also responsible for the Document Room, the cloakrooms, snack bars, telephones for messages when the House was in session, the Folding Room (which prepared outgoing publications mailed on behalf of members), and wastepaper recycling (which was a source of revenue). Miller made arrangements for Joint Sessions and Joint Meetings as well as issuing special passes and formally announcing the president and other dignitaries to Congress. In addition, he announced the arrival of messages from the president. The Doorkeeper issued House galley passes to members’ offices for distribution to visitors, monitored legislation on the floor, and enforced certain floor rules. Miller frequently showed visiting dignitaries and groups around the Capitol.

Miller became a well-known personality in the Capitol and was often the subject of media coverage. In 1977, Prentice-Hall published his memoir Fishbait: The Memoirs of the Congressional Doorkeeper. Miller died at his home in Greensboro, North Carolina on 12 September 1989.

Series 1: U.S. House of Representatives Administration 

Scope and Content

During Fishbait Miller’s tenure as Doorkeeper, the post was one of five officials elected by the majority of House members. Miller had approximately 340 employees under his management, including doormen on floor and galley levels, messengers, pages, barbers, retiring room attendants, and janitors. He was also responsible for the Document Room, the cloakrooms, snack bars, telephones for messages when the House was in session, the Folding Room (which prepared outgoing publications mailed on behalf of members), and wastepaper recycling (which was a source of revenue). Miller made arrangements for Joint Sessions and Joint Meetings as well as issuing special passes and formally announcing the president and other dignitaries to Congress. In addition, he announced the arrival of messages from the president. The Doorkeeper issued House galley passes to members’ offices for distribution to visitors, monitored legislation on the floor, and enforced certain floor rules. Miller frequently showed visiting dignitaries and groups around the Capitol.

Many of the folders in this series relate to different administrative units or employees that perform their duties within the United States House of Representatives as well as specific locations within the Capitol. Correspondence/Notes and Personnel files represent the largest component of the series and are subdivided by year. The series also contains files related to House Receptions, Joint Meetings, Join Sessions, and visits to the Capitol by important individuals. Most of these files include specific dates and names of individuals. Other dated folders include those related to specific programs within the Capitol for Flag Day, dedications, memorial services, and commemorative events.

Boxes 24 and 25 hold a number of bound volumes including guest books signed by visitors, the House Rules and Manual,  Calendars of the United States House of Representatives and the History of Legislation, and compilations of prayers offered by House and Senate chaplains.

Due to space constraints and the mundane nature of the content, the archives removed most routine correspondence from congressional offices and federal officials requesting galley passes.

Researchers should note that files on Joint Sessions with presidents appear in Series 2: Presidential Material. Most correspondence with individual members of Congress reside in Series 3, and documents related to congressional pages comprise Series 4. Additional items related to House administration are present in Series 19: Oversized Material; Series 20: Photographs; Series 21: Recordings; and Series 22: Memorabilia.

In addition to personal communications, the correspondence will often address matters related to the administration of the House of Representatives, patronage positions, tours and passes for visiting constituents, and legislative issues. The files may also contain holiday cards and references to gifts of regional food produce and products.

U.S. Representative William M. “Bill” Colmer provided financial assistance for Fishbait Miller to attend Perkinston Junior College on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast and later helped him to obtain his first job in Washington DC as a Capitol Post Office deliveryman. They retained close ties through the years, and Miller often assisted with constituent matters.

The series also contains significant material related to John W. McCormack of Massachusetts who served as Speaker of the House from 1962 to 1971. The five folders for McCormack contain numerous handwritten notes. In his memoir Fishbait, Miller wrote “McCormack would write me little notes of instructions and some weeks I had as many as one hundred missiles from him. Fortunately, most of them said, ‘Dear, Bill, remind me…’ But being the Speaker’s memory was job enough.”

Additional correspondence from members of Congress also appear in Series 1: U.S. House of Representatives Administration, and further related items are present in Series 19: Oversized Material; Series 20: Photographs; Series 21: Recordings; and Series 22: Memorabilia.

Series 4: Congressional Pages 

Scope and Content

Congress hired the first congressional pages to serve as messengers in 1827. In addition to providing a messenger service between House Office Buildings and the Capitol, duties evolved to include taking statements from members of Congress for inclusion in the Congressional Record, printing and delivering vote reports, tending members’ personal needs while on the floor of the House, managing the phones in the cloakrooms, and operating the bell system. During Fishbait Miller’s tenure as Doorkeeper, only selected U.S. Representatives held patronage over appointments. Pages boarded at approved facilities in the District of Columbia and attended school when not performing their duties.

The five boxes in this series include correspondence with potential pages, informational literature, documents concerning page housing and schooling, as well as page handbooks. Files also include copies of The Congressional, the yearbook of the pages. The first female page received an appointment in 1973, and this series includes material related to that watermark event. File are arranged chronologically by year and date from 1949 to 1974 with undated material at the end of the series. Due to privacy concerns, archivists removed all documents with school transcripts and grades.

Series 20: Photographs contains images of congressional pages.

Series 6: Press 

Scope and Content

As Doorkeeper of the U.S. House of Representatives, Fishbait Miller managed the press galleys in the House chamber as well as media access during joint sessions and joint meetings when the president, foreign dignitaries, or other notable individuals spoke before Congress. With a facility for placing names to faces, news groups often asked Miller to events so he could insure that public officials were greeted and their presence acknowledged. In addition, he was a public personality whom journalists often chose to spotlight in feature stories.

Comprised of three boxes, this series contains correspondence, invitations, newsletters, programs, and other material related to individuals journalists, news outlets, or professional organizations. Subseries 1 holds general material organized simply by year. Subseries 2 is subdivided into the following professional organizations: National Press Club, Radio and Television Correspondents Association, White House Photographers Association, and the Women’s National Press Club. The files of the White House Photographers Association in particular contain a large amount of the group’s programs, literature, and exhibit catalogs.

Many of the images in Series 20: Photographs were given to Miller by press photographers for his personal collection. Series 7: Clippings includes articles written about Miller as well as congressional coverage. Miller's media presence is documented in Series 21: Recordings.

Series 8: Invitations and Schedules 

Scope and Content

The seven boxes in Series 8 hold invitations received by Fishbait Miller as well as his schedule. The contents are arranged chronologically from 1936 to 1978. Undated material appears at the end of the container list as well as separate folders on Ingalls Shipbuilding/Litton Industries in Pascagoula, Mississippi and the Mississippi Society of Washington.

As Doorkeeper of the U.S. House of Representatives, Miller received invitations to occasions that ranged from private dinner parties to cultural affairs, lobbyist receptions, and White House events. Due to his facility with matching names and faces of Members of Congress, organizations often requested Miller to participate at various functions to help with formal recognition of officials. In addition, he received numerous invitations to speak before groups. Invitation to congressional-specific programs and movie premiers in Washington, DC have separate folders.

This series also includes memoranda on Miller’s schedule as well as annual calendars. Some of the content is related to providing tours or House galley access to visitors, but researchers should note that similar material is available in File Series 1: House Administration, including invitations and other documents related to official congressional events.

Invitations issued by the White House are stored in Series 2: Presidential Material and those issued by individual members of Congress are primarily filed in Series 3: Members of Congress. Related items to some of these event may also appear in Series 7: Clippings; Series 20: Photographs; and Series 22: Memorabilia.
