We Called Him 'Bunny'


Author(s):
Abstract:
Vermont 'Bunny' Royster, native of Raleigh and grandson of the founder of Royster Candy, epitomizes the phrase 'local boy makes good.' Never afraid of hard work, Bunny was a bus boy as young man and eventually made his way to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he worked for THE DAILY TAR HEEL and CAROLINA MAGAZINE. After a career in the Navy, Royster moved to New York to work for the WALL STREET JOURNAL and became editor of the most famous financial newspaper in America. Royster retired at age 56 and went back to Chapel Hill to teach journalism at UNC.
