Roy Reed was my professor and instructor at the University of Arkansas School of Journalism. He was wonderful. I used to "run" to his class, and enter out of breath. Roy would just smile.  
What Roy Reed taught me has served me for many years in many ways. In my mind, he remains a true gentleman and a first-rate scholar who never lost his sense of humor.
