Sincere condolences to Bill’s wife and children. Bill was my supervisor at South Side Settlement, Columbus, Ohio in the 1970’s. It was my first Social Work job after grad school. My interest was in community organization and I was fortunate to have Bill as my mentor. He knew his stuff. He taught many young social workers , leaving an important legacy and was a tireless advocate for social justice.
