In memory of Professor Bill DeWitt ’61
The department is sad to report that Professor Bill DeWitt died at home on May 3rd. A member of the Class of 1961, Bill was a part of the biology department and the college since his return to Williams in 1967. The many students who knew and admired him include the large number he taught in Biology 101 and in his very popular Clocks senior seminar.
If you would like to share a memory or offer condolences, you may visit his memorial site. All comments will be passed along to his family.
Welcome to The Biology Department
The scope of our interests is broad, extending from molecular biology and biochemistry through cell biology, physiology, neurobiology and behavior, to evolutionary biology and ecology. In the classroom and the laboratory, our students experience the excitement of exploring what’s known and, more importantly, the questions that remain in these dynamic disciplines. Within the context of the Williams College liberal arts experience, the Biology curriculum creates a potent intellectual mix that equips our majors for success in many different areas after graduation.
