Happy Holidays from Ned Ray McWherter

Ned Ray McWherter was the Governor of Tennessee from 1987 - 1995.   He lived in Dresden and Kent has some funny stories and good memories to tell about Ned Ray, who owned the local beer distributorship.  The closest I ever got to Ned Ray McWherter was the library at the University of Memphis which was named for him.  I worked there from it's opening in 1994 till I moved on to Business and Finance in 1997.  Ria Moran saved holiday card and since it's the Christmas season I decided to post it in remembrance of Governor McWherter.  A son of Weakley County Tennessee.

Governor McWherter was born October 15, 1930 and died April 4, 2011.   He is interred at Sunset Cemetery in Dresden.
