From the Desk of Dr. Buckman: Larry Lorenz

Colleagues:

Three different people informed me of the passing of Larry Lorenz, retired communications department chair at Loyola University in New Orleans, who hired me for my first full-time teaching job after I finished my doctorate at UT Austin in 1986. He had an eventful career as a professional journalist before entering academia, as you’ll see in this WWL obit. I remember his intellect and sense of humor.

Robert Buckman, Ph.D. is an associate professor of journalism at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and an SPJ Louisiana board member.
