IWW Biography

These are a list of some of our more notable members, some of them well known as IWW members, some of them not as well known.  Although most of them are deceased, a few of them are still living.  A few of them (marked by an asterisk after their name) are rumored to have been members, though proof of this is uncertain.  We will be making additions to this list over time, so it should always be regarded as a work in progress.
