Lewis Grizzard : The Dawg That Did Not Hunt
by Peter Stoddard




Overview -
A Collection of Grizzard Stories the World Has Never Heard, As Told by Many Who Knew Lewis Best. Lewis Grizzard was perhaps the greatest American humor columnist of all time. Sadly he died at age 47 in 1994. In November 2018 Peter Stoddard set out to learn why Lewis's legacy appeared to be fading. He visited the Lewis Grizzard Museum in Moreland and University of Georgia, Peter's own alma mater. He talked to people who knew Lewis casually and others who knew him well. No one Peter talked to knew of any work underway to revive the Grizzard legacy. Peter then launched an intense but most entertaining effort to learn new stories that only Lewis's closest friends could tell. Lewis was loved by so many it was not difficult to get folks to share their experiences once Peter reached them. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to the face of readers. If it is only marginally as successful as Lewis was at achieving that result, Peter will be thrilled. Lewis gave such pleasure to so many. We hope he is smiling down on all this.
