TODAY WE  continue Vanessa Neubauer’s reading of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.

This week we present details of William Pierce’s early life — his birth, his parents, and other family members — his early schooling and childhood enthusiasms — his life at a Texas military academy — his first jobs — his interactions with the church — his days at Rice University — his work at Los Alamos and Cal Tech — his doctoral studies — his days as a university professor — his marriage to a young student — his children and subsequent marriages — his love for women and his favorite cats. (ILLUSTRATION: William Pierce as a very young child and in his 60s.)

This audio book will be published in weekly chapter installments on The American Mercury and will be available from the Mercury as a full-length audio book when the series is completed.

One of the most original — and controversial — thinkers of the 20th century was White nationalist, novelist, and founder of a new European religion, Cosmotheism, Dr. William L. Pierce.

The only real biography of Dr. Pierce is Professor Robert S. Griffin’s The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds, which was published in 2001. This week we continue with the third chapter, “Early Life,” of the book. Experience William Pierce, the writer, the philosopher, the radical — and the builder of an intentional White community in the mountains of West Virginia — just as Robert Griffin experienced him, by pressing the play button now.

  1. I have no issue with Pierce’s politics, and as for American women being spoiled– right on!– but his treatment of “Irina” is just too much… He didn’t want a wife, he wanted a ’50s mom– FOR HIS CATS!! Or a house slave for sex and housework. It’s just bizarre.
