Cameron Addis Curriculum Vitae
Jefferson's ideas on education evolved over sixty years - from his adolescent years at The College of William and Mary, through the Revolution and election of 1800, to his death in 1826. In 1776, he saw public education as the cornerstone of Virginia's revolution and hoped it would help destroy aristocratic and denominational privilege, create opportunities based on merit, foster humanism and encourage the political awareness necessary for a republican society. Though limited to white males, public education was a progressive idea for its time. Jefferson's Vision for Education, 1760-1845 examines why Jefferson subverted the democratic spirit of his early plans, and how well other political and religious dimensions of his vision materialized at the University of Virginia during its first twenty years

The Darkroom. Viking Press, 1980.
"In this novel the character of William Holland is based on the high-profile case of Bradford Bishop, the State Department official who, in 1976, murdered his mother, his wife, and his three children in their suburban Maryland home. Allegedly, Bishop loaded the five battered bodies into the family station wagon and drove all night to a wooded grove in North Carolina. There, he dug a pit, dumped the remains of his loved ones, doused them with kerosene and set them afire. Smoke from the fire was spotted and the bodies were discovered and identified. Bradford Bishop, however, was long gone."
