Dr. Reinhard Zachau Retires

After 39 years teaching German at Sewanee, Dr. Zachau is retiring. Dr. Davidheiser organized a festive gathering of his colleagues, friends, and students at the Alumni House to mark this momentous transition.  Remarks were given by Davidheiser along with colleagues from other institutions who had collaborated with him.  During his many years at Sewanee, Dr. Zachau published numerous books and articles, played an active role in developing the German teaching profession in the Southeast, helped start the Film Studies Department, and expanded study abroad opportunities in the German-speaking world.
