WilliamLutherPierce [1]William Luther Pierce was born on September 11, 1933 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. He died on July 23, 2002 in Mill Point, West Virginia of cancer. Pierce earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from Rice University and a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Colorado, Boulder. From 1962 to 1965, Pierce was Assistant Professor of physics at Oregon State University, but he left academia to work full time on white racial preservation.

In 1966, Pierce moved to the Washington, D.C. area to work with George Lincoln Rockwell and the National Socialist White People’s Party. Pierce edited the NSWPP’s theoretical journal National Socialist World. After Rockwell was assassinated in 1967 by a disaffected follower, Pierce worked with Willis Carto’s National Youth Alliance. In 1974, Pierce founded the National Alliance, which he led until his death.

The National Alliance was a political membership organization that aimed to become the vanguard of a White Nationalist revolution in North America and around the world. The Alliance’s work was primarily metapolitical. National Vanguard Books published books and maintained an excellent, wide-ranging book catalog. The Alliance also published National Vanguard magazine and other periodicals. Pierce’s American Dissident Voices broadcasts reached a world-wide audience. Pierce’s commitment to metapolitics was so thoroughgoing that he even founded the religion of Cosmotheism to provide philosophical and spiritual foundations for the National Alliance’s work. But the Alliance did not neglect the other fundamental branch of metapolitics: community organizing. The Alliance also worked to foster local National Alliance groups and to educate a leadership cadre.
