Thaddeus Braxton Woody, 98, who taught romance languages at the University for 43 years, died Jan. 9 in Charlottesville.

He received a bachelor of arts degree at the University in 1923 and later studied at the University of Puerto Rico, the Sorbonne in Paris, and Indiana University. He joined the U.Va. faculty in 1928 and retired as professor emeritus in 1971.

During his tenure, Woody taught French and Spanish language, literature and civilization, and for 13 years served as an assistant dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, the Raven Society and the Jefferson Society. He received the Raven Award, the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, and the IMP Award, and was the first recipient of the Alumni Association Distinguished Professor Award in 1966.

A graveside service was held Jan. 12 at University Cemetery. Memorial donations may be directed to the Jefferson Society's T. Braxton Woody Awards in French and Spanish, part of the U.Va. Fund.
