Bill attended public schools and at fourteen he entered Stanton Military Academy in Virginia, which he attended for three years. Bill then graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in English in 1951. After graduation, Bill joined the Marine Corps and fought in the Korean War. Following the war, Bill continued his post-graduate studies in eighteenth-century English literature at Columbia University and was awarded his PhD. in 1963. During his doctoral studies, Bill was an instructor at Hamilton College, but in his final year of doctoral studies Sarah Lawrence College hired Bill to teach English literature. Since 1962, Bill has taught a variety of courses including eighteenth-century English literature, film history, history, art history, and religion.
