Eagle Archive: Recalling Richard Dixon, and a son's pride in his father's legacy




On March 5, 2010 Bernie Jones, a member of the Carroll Community College Foundation board of directors, introduced Timothy A. Dixon as a guest speaker for an author’s book talk at the 13th annual Random House Book Fair. Tim Dixon wrote a book, “Maryland’s First Black State Treasurer” about his father Richard N. Dixon.
