Former stockbroker William D. Berghold now has time to relax in the beautiful environment of Livingston, Montana. A small city, Livingston is located on the Yellowstone River in the southwestern part of the state, a gateway to Yellowstone National Park. After living on the East Coast for most of his life, William D. Berghold moved to Montana in 2010. In his new home state, he enjoys hiking in the Crazy Mountains, and fishing in the abundant rivers. He also remains active by taking spinning classes at the gym and working with weights. Quieter times will find him playing duplicate bridge with friends. A caring pet owner, he ensures that his two dogs get strenuous exercise by entering them in lure coursing competitions, a controlled performance sport where plastic bags simulate jackrabbits, the prey traditionally chased by sighthounds.
After graduating in 1960 from Holy Cross College in Worchester, Massachusetts, William D. Berghold joined Merrill Lynch, and following training, registered as a stockbroker.
