From Nancy Burt

In my mind's eye, Jerry is always wearing a raincoat and is right in the middle of the action. He was one of the most genial men I have ever met and yet absolutely determined to get whatever story he was after. He was a very good reporter and a wonderful human being.

  1. genial yes, and gracious too, as an email today from Marilyn Hawes put it: "A very gracious man, as well. I heard a quote read by Scott Simon recently about a baseball player who had recently died; the quote reminded me of Jerry (I am adding Jerry's name): "If there is a Hall of Fame for graciousness, Jerry Gillam belongs in the first row."
