James T. Molloy, 1936-2011
July 20, 2011
James Molloy, the last Doorkeeper of the House of Representatives, died this week. As Doorkeeper, one of his official duties was to announce the president of the United States to the assembled joint membership and escort the president to the podium. In this clip from 1986, one can see Mr. Molloy announcing the president.
Mr. Molloy, who served as Doorkeeper from 1974 until the position was abolished in 1995, sat down with C-SPAN in 1989 to discuss his duties.
