After his discovery of pantothenic acid and the successful launching of the Clayton Foundation Biochemical Institute in 1940, Williams turned much of his attention to educating the public and the medical profession about the importance of nutrition and biochemical individuality. His books such as Nutrition Against Disease, Biochemical Individuality, The Wonderful World Within You, and The Prevention of Alcoholism had wide impact. They helped inspire the current explosion of nutrition research, and they strongly influenced many prominent leaders such Linus Pauling, Wayne Jonas (former director, NIH Office of Alternative Medicine), Jonathan Wright, Alan Gaby, Abram Hoffer, Jeffrey Bland, Carl Pfeiffer, and Hugh D. Riordan.
Williamss writings remain popular today, because of his deep insight into basic principles, his originality, and his clear writing. Two books were reissued in 1998, and some older books are still available. Here we list all his books, sources for those available, and tables of contents and introductions for many. We also list his scientific and lay articles and offer reprints or copies. We hope you enjoy these and other features, some of which are under construction.
