Unpublished William Appleman Williams Novel Released
The text of a previously unpublished novel written by historian William Appleman Williams is now available on the OSU Libraries Special Collections website.
Titled Ninety Days Inside the Empire, the novel, penned by Williams in the 1980s, touches upon several themes that were important to the author's life and work. Set in Corpus Christi, Texas, Williams's book tells the story of racial strife and civil rights mobilization through the eyes of military servicemen following the close of World War II. Williams, a veteran of the United States Navy, served as a line officer during the second world war. Following the close of hostilities, Williams was stationed in Corpus Christi where he joined the N.A.A.C.P. and participated in local civil rights activities.
The web version of Ninety Days Inside the Empire spans 125 pages over fourteen chapters. The text is enhanced by a number of illustrations and is introduced by Dr. Kerry Ahearn, chair of the Oregon State University English department
