Percy Williams Book

More news about Grandpa Doral Pilling.  The professor to whom I recently lent Doral Pilling's oral history just informed me that there was a new book published September 2011 about Percy Williams.  The title is I Just Ran: Percy Williams, World's Fastest Human by Samuel Hawley.  The professor said there was a picture of Doral and Percy standing together at the Olympics inside the book.  If someone buys it, let us know what is inside, if it is a good read, and whether there is any information about Doral.

  1. Hi Tonia,

    Thanks. Fun to read about that. When life slows down, I think I will borrow the Percy Williams book from the library and give it a try.


  2. And I too would love to read that book. Doral always talked about Percy with great admiration and respect.
