Alexander, Jr., William's father, ( who was of Irish Catholic descent ) was a highly respected history teacher and football coach at Massapequa High School, who died of lung cancer at the age of 55 in 1983. He and wife Carol had married for 29 years. Alexander was recently honored by Massapequa High School, by naming their auditorium after him.


Carol, William's mother, is not only the head of the Baldwin family, but is fastly becoming the more famous of the Baldwin Clan, known respectively as a courageous breast cancer survivor, ( who was diagnosed with the disease in 1990.) She, since then, along with William and his siblings have continued the fight against breast cancer, by helping to raise money for more breast cancer research through her foundation, a sole-purpose co-corporation called The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc. ( in which she created in 1996.) A graduate of Syrucuse University, this mother of six, and grandmother of seventeen, still works today helping others with breast cancer. To find out more about The Carol M.

Originally, wanting to become a lawyer, after studying political science at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C., his mind and life changed for the better after landing the role of Joshua Rush on Knots Landing. According, to younger brother Stephen, after seeing Alec make so much money, they ( Will, Stephen & Daniel ) couldn't help but to give acting a try themselves.
