TODAY WE PRESENT THE FINAL installment of our audio book series based on the biography of William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds by Robert S. Griffin, read by Vanessa Neubauer. (ILLUSTRATION: Portrait of Dr. William L. Pierce by S.M. Casper)
Today’s chapter, entitled “Final Contact,” has the author, Robert S. Griffin, reflecting on Pierce the teacher, Pierce the radical, and Pierce the man as he has known him. Professor Griffin, on his last day with Dr. Pierce, asks him what he thinks his legacy will be — what purpose his life has served — and what form the future he helped to shape will take. And what part, the author asks, did Dr. Pierce’s sense of responsibility play in what he accomplished?
We thank Professor Robert S. Griffin for his multiple kindnesses and assistance in making this project possible. We thank you, our readers, for being willing to explore the life and ideas of a man whom the Establishment has derided, attacked, and condemned as “evil.” And we thank Miss Vanessa Neubauer for her hard work in recording this audio book.
Today we rejoin Vanessa Neubauer in her reading of this week’s installment — the very last chapter, chapter 29 — of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.
