W&L Visiting Professor Joins Hall of Fame

When it comes to Hall of Famers from Grambling University, you’re apt to think football. Caesar Andrews, the Reynolds Distinguished Visiting Professor in Washington and Lee University’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communications, didn’t play football for the Tigers of legendary head coach Eddie Robinson. (Caesar was at Grambling at the same time as Washington Redskins Super Bowl quarterback Doug Williams.) Earlier this fall, Caesar was inducted into Grambling’s Hall of Fame from the College of Professional Studies where he received a degree in journalism. After an illustrious career in journalism, culminating with a Pulitzer Prize at the Detroit Free-Press, Caesar has spent the fall in Reid Hall, teaching a course on copy editing and a course he designed called “Covering Classic Journalism.” Along the way he talked about the future of newspapers in a lecture in Stackhouse Theatre. If you miss it, you can watch Caesar’s presentation on our YouTube Channel at this link.
