Alumnus directs gift to fellow history majors
Preserving the past is what William Davis ’81 is passionate about. An archivist at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Davis has always loved history. While he was growing up in Long Island, N.Y., history was his favorite subject, so when it came time for Davis to search for a college, he had a major in mind, but needed the right school. Davis’ adviser recommended Washington & Jefferson College on the strength of its history department. Davis visited the campus, liked it immediately and chose W&J as his academic home.
