WHAT WAS it like to live and work closely with the revolutionary writer and thinker William Luther Pierce? What did he and his colleagues gain — and lose — by devoting their lives to the cause of White survival and the National Alliance, the group founded by Dr. Pierce? On today’s installment of our audio book series based on The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds by Robert S. Griffin, read by Vanessa Neubauer, we’re going to find out. (ILLUSTRATION: Dr. William L. Pierce speaks at a Leadership Conference at National Alliance headquarters.)
Today’s chapter, entitled “The Leadership Conference,” takes us through two days in the lives of Pierce, his wife, his co-workers, and the rising racial-nationalist activists who gathered to speak and confer with Pierce in his mountain aerie deep in the woods of West Virginia.
Today we rejoin Vanessa Neubauer in her reading of this week’s installment — the next-to-last chapter, chapter 28 — of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.

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.
