William Anderson (American writer)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Anderson (born 1952) is an American author, historian and lecturer. He is a specialist in the subject of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her times.

His interest in American frontier began after reading Little House on the Prairie. While attending Albion College as an undergraduate student majoring in English and history he worked for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society in DeSmet, South Dakota.[1] He is a director of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri and is a board member of the Wilder Home Association which runs the museum.[2]  He works as a teacher in Michigan.[3]

His many recognitions for writing include the Western History Association's Billington Award,[4] the Robinson award of the South Dakota State Historical Society,[5] National Endowment for the Humanities awards and National Council for the Social Studies.[citation needed] In September 2002, he was invited to the White House for the third of Laura Bush's American Authors Symposia. The First Lady, a former teacher and librarian, assembled scholars, authors and historians for a conference on the frontier experience.
