The Wright Stuff
Joe Wright, 1943-2003
Liz Donovan's Tribute to Joe Wright
Many of you should remember Joe, he last attended SLA conventions as the research director of the Miami News, which closed in 1988. Since then, Joe's been archivist/researcher at WPLG, the Post Newsweek station in Miami.
Before that he was an assistant librarian at the Washington Post from
Joe loved working in news. He was on top of the news more than anyone
But his true love was newspapers and his heart was hurting the last years, wishing he was still doing that.
I met Joe in 1968, when as a temp contest worker in the Post's promotions
He died last night. There won't be any ceremonies, according to his wife
Susan Wennergren. The home address is 3850 Battersea Rd, Miami FL 33133, if anyone wants to
send a card.
