William E. Williams '73 Lectures at Hamilton

William E. Williams '73

William Earle Williams '73 with Students

The opening of a trio of exhibitions on view in the Emerson Gallery was celebrated Feb.12 with a talk by William Earl Williams '73 whose work comprises two of the shows, Celebrating Unsung Heroes and Unsung Places in Photographs and Uncovering the Path to Freedom: Photographs of the Underground Railroad. The black and white photographs illustrate two aspects of African American history: largely unknown Civil War battle sites that involved black soldiers and sites in Central New York significant to the Underground Railroad. Williams explained that his interest in the latter subject originated while attending Hamilton. He discussed the photos as historical documents, as formal artistic works and as artifacts with temporally significant meanings evoking in the viewer reflection on memory, dream and culture. The frequently haunting 
images inspire a reverence for the historical events as well as the passage of time.
