Historian, Paul Williams has been researching Dupont Circle houses and their occupants for more than fifteen years. During that period he has uncovered everything from the mundane to the outright bizarre, with murders, sex scandals, exploitive divorces, and society curses! You may think that youths throwing eggs on Halloween night, public drunkenness and live music are more recent events, but Williams will present evidence of these scandalous and shocking events that have been happening in Dupont Circle for well more than 120 years!

Williams is a graduate in Historic Preservation from Roger Williams and Cornell University, and is currently serving as the Executive Director of Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets.
