Remembering William Carlos Willams
Poet William Carlos Williams died on this date -- March 4 -- in 1963. Williams was Doctor Musial in Kerouac's The Dharma Bums. We wrote about Williams on his birthday so you can click here for some details on this influential person in the Kerouac world, including his advice to Jack and Allen Ginsberg et al. along with one of his poems.
RIP, Dr. Williams.
P.S. Monday March 2 we neglected to remember Kerouac's close friend, Sebastian Sampas, who died on that date in 1944 from a wound suffered at the Battle of Anzio.Read more about him here. RIP, Sammy.
