Peter Stoddard, Reviving the Legacy of Lewis Grizzard

On Monday, October 19th, Peter Stoddard, a UGA alumnus and rabid Dawg fan visited the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs. Since he was a boy, Mr. Stoddard has been a devoted fan of another UGA alumnus and rabid Dawg fan named Lewis Grizzard. For the decades of smiles given to him by reading Gizzard’s stories, Stoddard decided to create a compilation of Lewis Grizzard’s writings and funniest moments. He accomplished this through interviews with dozens of people who knew Grizzard the best. In his book, “Lewis Grizzard, The Dawg That Did Not Hunt”, Peter recounts stories that the world has never heard and promises to reveal a variety of facts about Grizzard’s life. Stoddard also promises to dispel a few “facts” as well. His book is intended to honor Lewis Grizzard with the prime goal of creating a few more smiles and transmit to others a more personal legacy of Grizzard’s humor.

The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs would like to thank Mr. Stoddard for helping to keep the writings and memories of Lewis Grizzard alive.
