Rex Scouten

The New York Times reports that one-time White House chief user Rex Scouten has died. He was 88 and suffered complications after hip surgery. Our best wishes go out to his friends and family.

Scouten served 10 presidents, from Truman to Clinton not only as chief usher from 1969 to 1986 but also previously as a Secret Service agent and afterward as curator. Scouten never wrote a book or otherwise published any memoirs.

  1. He was a really nice and thoughtful man. Thank you Mr. Scouten for the kindness you showed me, and for the giving of your time and knowledge so generously to me during our meetings at the White House. You were a fine gentleman and served the White House well.
