Long-time Bradley journalism professor Paul Snider has died.

Many journalists - both locally and nationally - tonight remember Snider as a pivotal figure in their careers.

He began teaching at Bradley in 1955.

His three-decade career there was interrupted only by short teaching stints in Afghanistan and Lebanon.

Snider also was a media figure in his own right...some of you may remember his "Media Man " commentaries on WEEK in the '70s.

Paul Snider is survived by his wife of 64 years, June...along with two sons, a daughter, and two grand-daughters.

He was 92 years old.
