William's ancestry is documented by the Overwharton Parish Register, and his marriage by a combination of records and family history detailed in the Cody-Combs-Stacy Report , which also includes both parents and siblings of Seth STACY Combs, as well as additional data in regard to their daughter, Winnifred Combs Sumner Hicks (See also below).

Unfortunately, for many years numerous researchers mistakenly believed that William Combs, Sr. was the father of only child, William Combs, Jr. of Russell Co, VA, who was instead, the s/o RW William & Sarah Ann MILLION Combs, Sr. As a result, no attempt was made to seek additional descendants of this couple. Only two children of William have been documented, and those only recently (John and Winnifred), although it appears probable that William also had a son, William, Jr., and undoubtedly several more children. Of these three or more children, however, only descendants of their daughter, Winnifred, have been actively researched in the past (Research in progress plus see below).

Included in the papers are his book Tennessee: A Political Study, published in 1940 in collaboration with William E. Cole, preliminary drafts of chapters for it and correspondence relating to subjects in the book. Other materials include a Biennial Report of the University of Tennessee (1936-1938); correspondence and reports of the Tennessee Taxpayers Association (1938-1939): annual meeting programs of the American Political Science Association (1935, 1940); and articles on county organization and the jury, judicial and criminal prosecution systems in Tennessee (1938-1939).

The papers relating to Michigan consist mainly of correspondence and staff or committee reports from: The Commission on Reform and Modernization in Government (1938-1939); The Michigan Constitutional Revision Study Commission (1942); and The Michigan Joint Legislative Committee on Reorganization of State Government (1950) of which he was the project director.

The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid hosts a solo show, William Kentridge. Enough and More Than Enough (1 November – 19 March). Curated by Manuel Borja-Villel and Soledad Liaño, the exhibition focuses on Kentridge’s stage work – including theatre, opera and performance – and uses it as a lens through which to approach his sculptural projects. In its broad selection of materials and media, the show pays heed to the synergies between the artist’s visual art and stage work, in addition to the particular focal points and formalisations set out in each project.

Art Exchange – sited at the University of Essex and described as a space where art, artists and audiences can meet – hosts screenings of William Kentridge’s 1990 video work, Monument (9 – 12 November). As a parable of resistance, Kentridge’s iconic video work forms part of the organisation’s current focus on art and its relationship to power. The video asks viewers to pause and consider who has the power to commission statues in public spaces – a question that continues to resonate today.

Work by Kentridge is included on the Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo di Roma’s latest exhibition of the institution’s permanent collection, titled The Place to Be (opens 1 November). The exhibition features over 60 works of art – from architecture, to installation, photography and other media – with pieces dating from the 1960s through to today, as well as some of the museum’s most recent acquisitions from 2016 and 2017.
