William Tyler Page (1868-1942, born in Frederick, Maryland) worked for 61 years in the United States Capitol, starting as a page in 1881 and rising to Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, a post he held from 1919 to 1931. He's probably best known for writing the American's Creed in 1917. The American's Creed was written for a nationwide contest and was, according to Page, "a summing up, in one hundred words, of the basic principles of American political faith." (He reportedly spent the prize money on Liberty Bonds) Page's family has deep roots in the United States. He is great-great-grandson of Carter Braxton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and a descendant of President John Tyler.
