University of Illinois Press Director Willis Regier was quoted in a Harvard Crimson story this week regarding the alleged false resume claims made by former Harvard student Adam B. Wheeler.

On the document, Wheeler called himself the “co-author” of four books with English Professor Marc Shell that are either under contract or under review with several major university presses. Willis G. Regier, director of University of Illinois Press, said in an interview Wednesday that “Wampum and the Origins of American Money” is indeed under contract with UIP, but Shell is the only name listed on the contract for the work.
