While Barbara is a respected figure in the typing community, she is not the fastest, and nowdays, 150 wpm for 50 minutes is not that impressive. The fastest 1 hour test sits at a staggering 189.4 wpm, set by (I believe) a multilingual typist named Jashe. As for William, I'm not sure on that. The highest speed recorded on a reasonable text sits above 400 wpm, for a quote from the show "Friends".

Mrs. Barbara Blackburn of Salem, Oregon, the fastest English language typist in the world, can maintain 150 wpm for 50 min (37,500 key strokes) and attains a speed of 170 wpm using the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard (DSK) system. Her top speed was recorded at 212 wpm.Source: Norris McWhirter, ed. (1985), THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS, 23rd US edition, New York: Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.

Barbara Blackburn failed her typing class at school, using a qwerty keyboard. An average professional typist can turn out 70 - 90 wpm, and 'hunt and peckers' can get up towards 30 wpm.
