Description

This piece profiles Dr. R. Stuart Grizzard ('41), sharing his thoughts on the University, work as a pastor, and views on political and social issues. Grizzard expressed a desire for his children to attend the University of Richmond; both Grizzard and his wife Barbara Eckles (WC '41) were second generation students. The piece also describes Gizzard's interest in fishing, reading, and his process of preparing his weekly sermon for the First Baptist Church in Norfolk. The piece concludes with Gizzard's thoughts on the integration of public schools, Gizzard believing the "massive resistance" movement to be ineffective but also stating the NAACP may be, "push[ing] too hard". Gizzard is presented as moderate in his opinions on desegregation.
