Fletcher Bright ‘49, one of McCallie School’s most loyal sons and a true renaissance man, passed away surrounded by family and friends at his home in Chattanooga on Christmas Day.

Bright was a leader in business, philanthropy and the arts throughout his life. He was a noted real estate developer in Chattanooga for decades at his company Fletcher Bright Company, where he learned the business from his father, 1909 McCallie graduate Gardner Bright.

For all his success in real estate, Fletcher Bright was perhaps most well known as an accomplished bluegrass musician and founding member of the Dismembered Tennesseans, which he started as a student at McCallie with classmates Frank McDonald ‘48, Sammy Joyce ‘48 and Ansley Moses ‘48.
