The University of Tennessee lost one of its most distinguished members last Saturday with the death of Professor Emeritus of Economics Walter C. "Terry" Neale.
His academic accolades included a B.A. from Princeton University, an M.A. from Columbia University and a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics. He spent time in the Navy during World War II, taught at Yale University, worked with the MIT India Project, served as a senior Fulbright Lecturer at Panjab University in India and worked in the economics program at the University of Texas, Austin, before joining the UT faculty.
While his professional achievements will be missed, so too, will his ties with family. He is survived by his wife, UT Vice Chancellor and Dean Anne Mayhew, his five children and their partners, and 10 grandchildren.
A gathering to celebrate his memory will be held later in Glencoe, Scotland, Neale's favorite location.
