In Memoriam

Everard W. Meade

Everard W. Meade, a retired faculty member of the Darden School, died Jan. 5 at the age of 90.

A 1931 U.Va. graduate, Meade was a radio producer in the 1930s of shows for Fred Allen, Al Jolson, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Jack Benny and Fred Astaire. Before teaching at Darden, Meade was a vice president of radio and television at Young & Rubicam Inc., as well as a vice president at Ogilvy & Mather in New York City. In the 1940s, he was assistant to the president of the American Tobacco Company. Joining the original Darden faculty in 1955, Meade taught advertising, analysis and management communications at the school for 25 years. He later served as a director of alumni affairs. Upon his retirement he received a Raven Award, and the Class of 1970 established a scholarship in his honor.

A memorial service was held Jan. 8 at St. Paul's Church in Ivy.
