Bill was born 1936 in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, in the Industrial Design Curriculum in 1958. From 1958 through1969 he held instructorships and professorships at North Carolina State University School of Design and the University of Illinois Industrial Design Department.
He left a tenured position at the U of I in the Summer of 1969. His works were then put in an exhibition titled, “The Baron & Bailey Light Circus” held at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Following this successful show Bill placed his art activities on hold and went into the business world holding executive positions in three major firms in manufacturing and marketing. His final position in the business world was as Vice President of Leisure Concepts, Inc. (NYSE). In 1993 after living and working in New York City, Bill moved to Taos, New Mexico where he is pursuing his interests in western and contemporary art.
