'Larger-than-life' Davis
dies of a heart attack at 80
Buddy Davis died last week of a heart attack. He was 80.
His wife Margie and their daughter and son were with him when he died.
He earned a bachelor's in journalism in 1948 and a master's in 1952 from
UF. He joined the journalism faculty in 1954 and
retired in 1985. During most of his teaching career,
he also worked at the Gainesville Sun. He won the
Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 1971. That same
year he was recognized as the College's second
alumnus of distinction and was named a distin-
guished alumnus of UF.
In 1977, he received the Wells Key Award from
Sigma Delta Chi. That year he also was named a
SD Distinguished Service Professor at UF. In 1963, he
received the Sidney Hillman Award for editorials
dealing with race relations and civil liberties.
"Buddy was larger than life while a faculty member and a legend to
generations of journalism students," Dean Terry Hynes said. "He taught
almost every course in the journalism curriculum at one time or another, so
almost every student in the college had a class with him."
Many of his students put the lessons he taught them to good use, Dean
Emeritus Ralph Lowenstein said.
"Buddy was simply a great teacher," he said, "and the outstanding editors
that he produced throughout the nation is proof of that statement."
Davis' body will be cremated. The family plans to have a public memo-
rial service, Sept. 5 at 3p.m.
