Wills On Duty: The Story of Watergate Security Guard Frank Wills

You’d think he’d be a household name, but he never quite was. Frank Wills discovered the Watergate burglary. From the beginning of his shift he noticed a door had been deliberately held unlocked in the basement of The Watergate Office Complex.

The rest became history. But for Wills it was bittersweet. While others, even convicted criminals got air time and book deals, his intersection with history also became a story of race and the choppy waters of a “proto-reality TV” 1970’s America. We also tell the story of an intern in the wrong place at the wrong time, though it was perhaps the right time who played a completely accidental role in thwarting a burglary.
