Dwight Teeter

Dwight Teeter — journalist, professor of journalism, former dean, and friend of TNDP — passed away last week.

Details of Dwight’s extraordinary life and career can be found in the University of Tennessee’s Tennessee Today. Dwight was a great supporter of TNDP. He served on our Advisory Board and provided some of the newspaper essays for Chronicling America. He also shared numerous anecdotes with us about his life in newspapering. Dwight’s laughter and sense of humor will be foremost in our memories of him; it was an honor to work with him.

Thank you, Dwight Teeter, for your contribution to making Tennessee’s historical newspapers accessible to a wider audience.
