William Williams Fuller, born August 14, 1792 in Princeton, Massachusetts, was the son of Rev. Timothy and Sarah Williams Fuller. From 1811-1812 William taught at Exeter. In 1813 he graduated from Harvard University. He completed his legal studies at the Litchfield Law School the following year, and began his legal practice in several cities. In 1838, at the solicitation of Judge Thomas Ford, William moved to Oregon, Illinois. On August 16, 1840 he married Mary Fletcher. The marriage ended abruptly however when Mary passed away on December 5, 1841, likely as a result of child birth. William and Mary's child, Sarah, passed away soon after her mother. On March 3, 1847 William married a second time to Almira M. Robertson, preceptress of Rock River Seminary. Two years later, on August 17, 1849 William passed away.

The Citation of Attendance provides primary source documentation of the student’s attendance at the Litchfield Female Academy and/or the Litchfield Law School. If a citation is absent, the student is thought to have attended but currently lacks primary source confirmation.
Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive. Researchers and staff have identified students through letters, diaries, family histories and genealogies, and town histories as well as catalogues of students printed in various years. Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students. The history of both schools and the identification of the students who attended them owe credit to the early 20th century research and documentation efforts of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel and Samuel Fisher, and the late 20th century research and documentation efforts of Lynne Templeton Brickley and the Litchfield Historical Society staff.
