Remembering Ted Lee Winstead

ted-winsteadTed Winstead, B.S.C.E. 1972, M.S.C.E. 1974, died on November 4, 2016, from complications following a heart attack. Ted had enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a structural engineer in Memphis with Kenworthy Associates for two years and Allen and Hoshall for 21 years, the last 17 as head of the structural engineering department. He retired from Allen and Hoshall in 1996, did some individual consulting, and retired to his home in Dresden, Tennessee. Ted is remembered as a highly competent structural engineer and a delightful colleague. In 1994, he and his wife Linda made a donation to Civil Engineering sufficient to endow a fellowship, and he chose to name that fellowship the Edwin G. and Patsy H. Burdette Graduate Fellowship in Structural Engineering. In the last several years, a significant number of students have received stipends from the fellowship to help support their graduate studies. Through the generous contributions of former students, faculty and friends, the value of the fellowship fund has grown to roughly 10 times its original value with more dollars pledged. But the fellowship would never have existed without the thoughtful and generous contribution made by Ted and Linda Winstead. Through this fellowship, Ted left his mark on Civil Engineering at The University of Tennessee.
