Twenty-nine years later, and in keeping with my Mother’s and Father’s idea, now online, through this website:
My name is Ed Arnold, Jr. my wife, Sinedu and I maintain and host this site now. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to us below.
With her silver hair, elegant style and Southern charm, Mrs. Arnold was a widely known and loved figure in the Washington community, especially in the world of Congress and public affairs. She was employed for 21 years by the Sergeant at Arms of the U.S. Senate, where she served as the Doorkeeper Supervisor in the Senate and interacted with Senators and staff on a daily
basis. Previously, she worked for Representative Roger Zion (R-Ill) in the late 1960s and as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines in the late 1950s.
Mary Arnold was born on April 17, 1938, in Jonesboro, Ark., and attended Memphis State University in Memphis, Tenn., for two years. She married her husband, Edwin Arnold, in 1959 and moved with him to the Washington area in 1960 when he accepted a position with Representative Ralph Harvey (R-IN).
A passionate lover of Boston Terriers and all animals, Mrs. Arnold was active in the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria; the Junior Women’s Club of Alexandria, where she was named Member of the Year in 1965; and the Junior Women’s Club of Memphis. She had the honor of serving as a Lady-in-Waiting in the Cotton Carnival in Memphis in 1956.
