Biographical Information

William Jarvie Nicoson (1932-2013) was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Marion Jarvie and William McGarvey Nicoson. He attended Phillips Exeter Academy, Princeton University, and Harvard Law School. He spent his Junior Year of college at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he studied acting with the Director of the Comedie Francais. At Princeton, he was a member of the Army ROTC. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army in Germany for two years.

Nicoson's career began at the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell. He worked in New York City and Paris practicing law before moving to Washington, D.C. in the 1960s.

In 1965 the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was created as an executive cabinet-level agency. HUD's mission is to help promote affordable home ownership and community development. William Nicoson was the first Director of the New Community Assistance Program at HUD. The primary goal of this office was to help foster cooperation among all levels of government and private business, both non-profit and profit. He resigned from this position in 1972.

When he moved to Washington, D.C., from New York City, he moved to the then-new community of Reston, Virginia. Robert E. Simon, Jr. was the founder of Reston. Simon purchased the land with the proceeds from the sale of Carnegie Hall in New York City in 1961. Construction began in 1963 with the building of Lake Anne. Nicoson and Simon shared many interests in planned communities and taught a course together in New Community Planning at the New School in New York City.

Nicoson was very active in Reston community organizations and served on a number of boards and committees. He was one of the founders of the Reston Connection newspaper and he served as publisher and writer of a weekly column for five years. He also wrote a monthly column for the Reston Times. In 2002 he was given the "Best of Reston" award for his civic participation.
