Remembering Saville Davis

Saville Davis was swift afoot, at the very edge of professional judgment and truth. He was coordinate with spiritual cause impelled through the mainstream and the demands of human events.Of immense value was his marvelous quality of making one feel a part of the team. He was a mentor to many young professionals in journalism. How he brought the country and the world to readers through correspondents and stringers. He was so awake, exciting, and focused. How that newsroom hummed, his piercing eyes reflecting instantaneous reasoning in a timeless competence. I give thanks for his being there with such professionalism and grace.
