Fred Powell, Former News Sentinel Copy Editor and ‘Wires Guru,’ Has Died at 76

Frederick Herman “Fred” Powell was soon to graduate from the University of Tennessee’s School of Journalism when he walked into the Knoxville News Sentinel Nov. 22, 1963, for a scheduled job interview.

It didn’t happen that day. President John F. Kennedy had just been shot, and the managing editor informed Mr. Powell he’d have to come back another time.
