Biographical/Historical Note

John Eldridge Drewry was born in Griffin, Georgia in 1902. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1922, he became an instructor at its school of journalism. He became director of the journalism school in 1932, and went on to become its first dean in 1940. He held this position until his retirement in 1969.

In addition to his role as educator, Drewry helped establish many programs to help working journalists continue their training. Amon these were the Georgia Press Institute, the Georgia Radio-Television Institute, and the Southern Industrial Editors' Institute. He also helped create the Georgia Scholastic Press Association for high school journalists and the Collegiate Press Association for college journalists. In 1940, Drewry helped begin the prestigious George Foster Peabody Awards for distinguished achievement in broadcasting. The awards continue to be administered by the Henry W. Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Drewry was the author of four books and editor of countless others. He produced many educational pamphlets and essays during his career and published a syndicated column of book reviews for over forty years.
