William H Chafe is Professor Emeritus of History and Alice Mary Baldwin Professor of History, Emeritus at Duke Sanford School of Public Policy. He earned his  PhD, at Columbia University in 1971.

From the day they first met at Yale Law School, Bill and Hillary were
inseparable and combative. As historian William H. Chafe reveals in Bill
and Hillary: The Politics of the Personal that dynamic has remained a
constant throughout their remarkable political careers.  Always
tempestuous, their relationship had as many lows as it did highs, from
near divorce to stunning electoral and political successes. “An
illuminating glimpse behind the scenes”—Kirkus Reviews.

Chafe is the
author of numerous prizewinning books on civil rights, women’s history,
and politics, including The Unfinished Journey: America Since World War
II and Private Lives / Public Consequences: Personality and Politics in
Modern America.

Much of Bill Chafe’s professional scholarship
reflects his long-term interest in issues of race and gender equality.
Former dean of the faculty of arts and sciences at Duke University, he
is the Alice Mary Baldwin Professor of History and a cofounder of the
Duke-UNC Center for Research on Women, the Duke Center for the Study of
Civil Rights and Race Relations, and the Duke Center for Documentary
Studies. A past president of OAH, he is the author of several books,
including Civilities and Civil Rights (1979), which won the Robert F.
Kennedy Book Award.
