Why Marriages Fail - Dr. William Pierce

Narrated by William Luther Pierce

Who was William Pierce?
William Pierce was born in Atlanta, Georgia to Marguerite Farrell and William Luther Pierce, Jr. His father was born in Christiansburg, Virginia in 1892. His mother was born in Richland, Georgia in 1910, with her family being part of the aristocracy of the Old South, descendants of Thomas H. Watts, the Governor of Alabama and Attorney General of the Confederate States of America.

Pierce performed well academically in school, skipping one grade. His last two years in high school were spent in a military academy. As a teenager his hobbies and interests were model rockets, chemistry, radios, electronics, and reading science fiction. His first aspiration was to become an astronaut.

After finishing military school in 1951, Pierce worked briefly in an oil field as a roustabout. He was injured when a four-inch (10 cm) pipe fell on his hand, and he spent the rest of that summer working as a shoe salesman. Pierce earned a scholarship to attend Rice University in Houston, Texas. He was graduated from Rice in 1955 with a baccalaureate in physics. He worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory before attending graduate school, first at Caltech and then the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he earned his doctorate in 1962. He taught physics as an assistant professor at Oregon State University from 1962 to 1965.

His time spent at Oregon State University (1962–1965) coincided with the rise of two social movements, the civil rights movement and the Vietnam anti-war movement. Pierce saw the civil rights movement, as a threat to the traditional European-American culture. He also rightfully saw the anti-war movement as communist-inspired and led primarily by Jews. In 1966, he became an associate of George Lincoln Rockwell. In 1970 Pierce took control of the National Youth Alliance in 1970, which was renamed the National Alliance in 1974. He also attempted during the Yom Kippur War to force McDonnell-Douglas into canceling military contracts that sent armaments to Israel, by buying shares of the company’s stock and putting forward the motion at the national shareholder’s meeting.

Pierce continued to grow the National Alliance successfully and meanwhile educating 100,000′s of people even after his death in 2001 through the legacy of his audio’s which have since been converted to video format like the one above.
