The UNL Digital Commons notes with regret the passing of J. Allen Williams (1936-2019), distinguished scholar and teacher in the Sociology Department, beginning in 1970. His published works included studies of civil rights protests, tolerance, nonconformity, environmental sociology, and children's books. In 1979 he received the university’s Distinguished Teaching Award. Along with his teaching and research at Nebraska, Williams was a member of Centennial College, a fellow of the Center for Great Plains Studies, an advisory editor for Great Plains Research, and a member of the Faculty Senate.
