William "Buzz" Alexander, U-M English professor and creator of Prison Creative Arts Project, died Sept. 19 at the age of 80.

When Ari Paul, a University of Michigan alum, met his aunt’s husband William “Buzz” Alexander as a teenager, he recognized how special Alexander was right away.

“Meeting him for the first time, you could tell he was someone of incredible experience and had an endless love of people,” Ari said. 

Janie Paul, Alexander’s wife and a School of Art & Design professor, met her husband in 1992 at the Blue Mountain Center, a community of writers and artists upstate New York. They became inseparable, she said.
