A playfully serious voice for liberty and peace.


Background Information

Robert Allan Williams spent the majority of his early years in Ohio, where he obtained a B.A. degree in History and Secondary Education at Walsh University.  Prior to that he was the 964th AWAC Squadron's Assistant Historian, Airman of the  Quarter, and learnt history from Professor William Savage whilst attending evening classes at the University of Oklahoma.  As president of Campus Libertarians he organized several campaigns against the Soloman Amendment's mandatory draft registration. 

Birth Place
Elyria, OH USA
Accomplishments

Williams held a provisional certificate to teach History in Ohio and is currently licensed to teach History in England & Wales. He was the first prize co-winner of a free market game design contest in 1994 by the Foundation for Economic Education.

After leaving the U.S. he studied at De Montfort University in England and the University of Wales at Bangor, supporting himself through teaching and coaching. He trained as a sociologist at Bangor, where he was awarded an MPhil in Sociology through the Centre for Comparative Criminology. Prior to that he earned a Post-graduate Diploma in Historical and Cultural Appraisals of Sport at De Montfort.

Williams produced British and English Champions in the sport of Olympic Wrestling while coaching at Baverstock Grant-Maintained School in Birmingham, England and at Croft Street JMI School in Walsall, England. Williams also established wrestling programs at Stuart Bathurst Roman Catholic School in Walsall, England, and at Bushloe High School in South Wigston, England. During this period, his wrestlers appeared on such television programs as Nickelodean's School of the Week, Channel Four News, and Birmingham Cable. Williams's crowning achievement was when Baverstock's Wrestling team captain Matthew Viney was selected to wrestle for his country as a member of the UK Cadet Squad in Sep '99. Shortly thereafter, a knee injury forced Williams to retire from coaching.

He has wide experience in his teaching career: he's worked as a substitute teacher, teacher in private practice, elementary teacher, secondary teacher, prison school teacher, public school teacher, private school teacher, Head Coach, College Lecturer, Director of Sport, and Educational Administrator. He was a doctoral student in Sociology at the University of Birminham, UK in 2009 until the Department was terminated in 2010. He has since followed his supervisor to the University of Huddersfield in order to complete his research on Libertarian electioneering. Williams also owns an educational support service.


"If you want to truly know something inside and out, you have to start out as a participant from the bottom", he said.
