Just ran across Dr. Bryant's obituary going back over old Tennessean newspapers. Would have commented sooner had I known. I always looked forward to classes with Dr. Bryant. She was one of my favorite teachers at Belmont. I loved her lectures as well as the extra elements she added to her classes like filmed documentaries. She had great style & class. I learned much from her. Although I didn't know her well, I found her to be a gentle, kind, and sweet person.
