Photo/portrait request[edit]

As the two previous photos of WEW have been recently deleted, could someone please provide a "free" portrait -- perhaps by contacting his office? TIA, Pete Tillman (talk) 21:53, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Austrian School?[edit]

I know Williams has been influenced by specific Austrians (notably Hayek), but should he be considered a member of the Austrian School per se? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:28, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

He is Hayekean AFAIK, but not sure. Do you know something else? --MeUser42 (talk) 23:45, 22 July 2012 (UTC)


Is it me or is this sentence really awkward? "Williams was born into a Black family." Is the point of the sentence to mention that Williams is an African American? --Xerographica (talk) 03:36, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

The sentence would be helpful in describing Steve Martin's charcter Navin in "The Jerk". In the case of Walter Williams, it is such an obvious point that it is silly to mention it. I am glad to see someone removed it.Gunbirddriver (talk) 22:14, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Talented in inconsistent performance[edit]

It is said "Williams was a talented high school student who displayed a very inconsistent performance in his studies". I don't think this assertion has any place in an encyclopaedia. It relies on no evidences and is actually about a very subjective judgement. Talented in what? according to whom and whichn criteria? How does it come we know he was talented if his performances were - at least sometimes - poor? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:15, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
