British-American astrologer who specialized in financial astrology and published "Simplified Astronomy For Astrologers," "Astro-Economics," "Business Cycle Forecasting" and "Magnum Opus Financial Astrology," 1892. He lectured widely, served as the president of the Astrologers Guild and was a member of AFA from 1949.

As he had moved to America at the age of seven, Williams served in the U.S. military, first as a private in the Mexican Border Campaign of 1916, in the A.E.F. from 1907-1918, and as a Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy in WW II. He was an electrical engineer with Consolidated Edison Co. in New York City. Early in his career he noticed a cyclic pattern in electrical breakdowns, which led him to study astrology.

He died on 2/08/1993 in New York, survived by one daughter and her family.


Source Notes

Data from his book "Financial Astrology." David Fisher quotes him for 2:45 AM "from his mom." His obituary gives October 11, 1897, "from him, B.R." In response to the inquiry made by LMR to AFA, James Holden answered that Williams gave different dates and times and the accurate one is indeterminate.
