For other characters named Angela, see Angela.
Nobody ever said science would smell clean and fresh. Anyway, you get used to it, if you give it some time.

Dr. Angela Williams is an NCR OSI researcher who is a colleague of Thomas Hildern in 2281.


Neither her education or her occupation as a scientist has helped Dr. Williams to lose the "twang" in her accent. A bit unusual for a scientist, she was born to a family of Brahmin ranchers in rural NCR country back west. Prior to 2281, Williams had become a top researcher for the Office of Science and Industry's eastern division, reporting directly to Dr. Thomas Hildern. However, the relationship between them is rather uneasy.

In recent months, Angela was assigned to be head of the Dam Project, charged with increasing and optimizing power output from the site. Unlike her colleague and superior, she is more passionate and concerned for the safety of Dr. Keely, a contractor sent to recover agricultural data from Vault 22.[1]

There Stands the Grass


  • There Stands the Grass: Angela is looking for someone to find Keely and get her back safely, if she's still alive. Once Keely is safe, Angela can be spoken to for a reward, before Thomas Hildern is spoken to. Receiving Angela's reward does not require recovering the data from Vault 22.
