William Still (1821-1902), worked to chronicle the activity of the fugitive slave in The Underground Railroad. Mr. Still contributed to the desegregation of public facilities in Pennsylvania and New Jersey through his persuasion of the state legislatures. Still is known as the “Father” of the Underground Railroad. In 1997, the U.S. Congress authorized a program to identify sites that were used by the Underground Railroad.
