William “Bill” W. Haddad, professor emeritus of history, died May 27. He was 82.
Haddad became a member of the Cal State Fullerton faculty in 1987. He taught Middle Eastern and Japanese history and served as chair of the Department of History until he retired in 2011. He also authored such books as “The Arab-Israeli Conflict in the Arab Press: The First Three Decades” in 2018 and co-authored “Iraq: The Human Cost of History” in 2003.
Before joining CSUF, Haddad taught and served as history department chair at Illinois State University. Haddad was a veteran of the U.S. Army, and served in Japan before he graduated with a Ph.D. in history from The Ohio State University.
He is survived by his widow, Barbara; son, Wade; daughter-in-law, Katie; and granddaughter, Quinn. A memorial is being planned for later this year in Normal, Illinois.
