Dr. Larry started his career as a high school teacher, earned a
doctorate in social psychology, served as a professor, dean and
eventually as founder and president of an experimental college for adults.
He then “graduated” to become an international technology executive. In this role, he founded a school for computer programmers and consultants in the Philippines, developed a technology exchange program with the Soviet Union, and pioneered the introduction of the PLATO instructional software system to the industrial training industry.
He then started a federal contracting company in Washington DC. In the years to follow, he introduced computer-based management to the federal workforce through the General Services Administration, participated in joint ventures with The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, the National Education Association, Microelectronics and Computer Consortium (MCC), and the University of New Orleans. Under contract with the Federal Railroad Administration, he developed the largest worker training program in history, and coordinated the initiation of what is now the Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which is playing a pivotal role in developing the vaccines for the coronavirus.
Dr. Fedewa retired from that business and shortly after found himself a political columnist for The Washington Times, which led to his becoming a media personality on radio and television. In 2018 he added a new role as a radio talk show host and a weekly columnist for the Richfield Press.
