Bill was born on a farm in Alabama, with two noses and a harelip. Even worse, his eyes were sealed and required an operattion to be opened. The disfigured boy was deprived of an education. At fourteen Durks left the farm and exhibited his flawed face in a Single-O show. He became know as "The man with two noses and three eyes." In the 1960s , he earned as much as $100.00 a week plus a cash bonus. He appeared At Huberts Museum in New York. He married Mildred the Alligator-skinned Women later in life. He became a widower in 1968.
