    SAVANNAH, GA, June 26, 2019 — Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Hon. G. William Davenport with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Davenport celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Judge G. William Davenport retired from his U.S. Administrative Law Judge position with the Social Security Administration in October 2015, after over 20 years (1994-2015) on the bench. He had previously served as a Senior Trial Attorney with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for over I5 years (1979-94), acting as a trial team leader for class action EEO cases in the Deep South. In that service, Judge Davenport won the largest Age Discrimination prosecution ever recorded at the time in the State of Alabama, as well as the largest Equal Pay Act recovery. He was a litigation associate with Dawson & Thomason, in Birmingham, Alabama, for two years (1977-79) when first admitted to the Bar, concentrating on criminal defense and plaintiff's bar related civil rights cases.

Judge Davenport holds a J.D. from Duke Law School (1977), and a separately earned Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University (1976), where he also won the Best Dissertation Award, after which Xerox University Publications put his book, Controlling the Multinational Corporations, into print. He graduated magna cum laude from Birmingham Southern College in 1972, where he was a member of both Phi Beta Kappa, and Omicron Delta Kappa honoraries.

The author of numerous law review articles on civil rights issues, and especially on Americans With Disabilities Act topics, Judge Davenport has also pursued a secondary part time career in teaching at the college level (including the University ofAlabama at Birmingham, and later at South University) where his courses in philosophy, pre-law studies, and American Government have all been well received by the students. One of Judge Davenport's proudest achievements is that he managed to mentor three (3) other EEOC lawyers who later achieved Administrative Law Judge status along with him, the highest merit based legal position in the Federal Service.
In light of all his accomplishments, Judge Davenport has previously been featured in Who's Who in American Law and Who's Who of Emerging Leaders in America.

In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Dr. Davenport has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
