Gerald Owen Grow is professor emeritus of magazine journalism at Florida A&M University. He graduated from Harvard in 1964 and received a Ph.D. in English from Yale in 1968 (in the peaceful days before Deconstruction), with a dissertation on Shakespeare’s tragedies and Milton’s Paradise Lost. He is the author of Florida Parks: A Guide to Camping in Nature, a nature-lover’s guide to the Florida outdoors.

After retiring in 2009, Grow began making photographs, many of the abstract images made with a intentional camera movement, which are on display here.

He also created and maintained Newsroom 101, an online course for journalism students on grammar, usage, spelling and journalistic style.
