one of the greats- intro to pr #3

I thought it note worthy that this was a feed on pr news rss feed. He was a giant in the pr industry. I think it is extremely appropriate and shows respect for him and his work.

ATLANTA: John Phillip Harrison, a Georgia PR and journalism professional for many years, passed away October 6 at age 75 from complications related to cancer. Harrison was PR director of WSB Radio in Atlanta in the 1960s and later opened his own firm, Harrison Public Relations.

Harrison was also president of the Georgia chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) in 1973, and he was elected to The Order of the Phoenix, the society's Hall of Fame. Donations may be made in his name to the group.
