Biographical / Historical
William L. Wilson, known to generations of Rice University students as Dr. Bill, was professor of electrical engineering at Rice University from 1972 and Resident Associate of Wiess College from 1978 until his retirement from Rice in 2006. He also served as interim Master of Wiess in 1983 and in a myriad of formal and informal roles on the Rice campus throughout his teaching career. The keeper of many Wiess traditions, he was arguably the most influential person in the college's history.
A native of Long Island, William L. Wilson Jr. grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, and came to Rice in 1972 after earning his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering at Cornell University. In 1978 he became a Resident Associate at Wiess College, one of the university's residential colleges. Wiess remained his home until 2006, when Dr. Bill retired to his long-time summer home in Vermont.
