Biographical Note

Harold Williams was a Baltimore Sun reporter for nearly 40 years. He joined the paper in 1940 and returned after serving as an Army counterintelligence officer in World War II.  He was based in San Francisco helping with security when the United Nations was founded. After his return to the Sun following the war, he was a feature writer on the Evening Sun City staff. He also supervised about 20 writers, photographers and editors as editor of the Evening Sun. While with the Sun Williams wrote a popular column called “I Remember.” In 1979, Williams became one of three manager editors after the Sunpapers reorganization. He retired in 1981. He wrote numerous books on the Baltimore fire of 1904, photographer A. Aubrey Bodine, 150 year history of the Sun, and a guide to Baltimore and Annapolis. He died in 2002 at 85 years.
