In Memoriam

Larry D. Terry (1954-2006)

Larry D. Terry, vice president for business affairs and professor of public administration at the University of Texas at Dallas, died, presumably, from an allergic reaction he suffered while attending an education conference in Atlanta. Dr. Terry was known to be allergic to seafood.

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Terry was a graduate of Lincoln University of Missouri. He held a master’s degree from the University of Missouri and a Ph.D. from Virginia Tech. Terry, a distinguished scholar, was editor of the journal Public Administration Review. He was the author of two books: The Leadership of Public Bureaucracies and Administrative Interpretation of Law.

Terry came to the University of Texas at Dallas in 2001. Previously he taught at Radford College in Virginia and Cleveland State University.
