Berkshire Eagle: Williams fires accused professor

WILLIAMSTOWN — A Williams College visiting professor, who pleaded guilty to charges of fraud in federal court last week, has been terminated from the college.

In a letter to the Williams College community, Interim President William Wagner said Bernard Moore’s employment with the college ended as of Monday.

He further stated, “We have found no evidence of serious misuse on his part of college resources.”

Moore, 51, whose real name is Ernest B. Moore, was the college’s W. Ford Schumann ‘50 visiting assistant professor in Democratic Studies, and was in his second year at Williams College.
