Bill worked as a theater technician in Baltimore and Philadelphia for many years before returning to graduate school. Along the way, he spent a week seasick while learning to sail a tall ship, organized an academic conference around the Grateful Dead, researched King Philip’s War for a motion-picture company, studied with the archaeologists at Jamestown and Williamsburg, and worked with museum collections including Civil War military uniforms, local cemetery records, and early electrical appliances. He has worked for the Department of Research and Collections since 2013.
