William Archer Fullingim (July 7, 1855 - August 6, 1965) was an American verified supercentenarian. He was born in Clarksville, Red River County, Texas, as the youngest of five siblings. His parents were William J. and Catharine Eliza Fullingim. At the age of 18, he started working on a ranch. He later worked in the cattle business and as a butcher. On August 11, 1879, he married Nancy Watson. The couple had three children in total. The family later moved to Oklahoma.

When asked if he had any advice for living a long life, he said  "No, because no one would take it if I gave it".

Fullingim died on August 6, 1965 in Lawton, Oklahoma, at the age of 110 years, 30 days. Nancy died the year before at the age of 103. He was the world's oldest verified living person. However if the pending case, James Monroe King's age is true, he would have been the world's second oldest living person as well as man.
