Journalist student who helped break coverage of the Koch Brothers interference with WSU dead
I just found out that Nathen Davis, a reporter at The WSU(Wichita State University) Sunflower has died. Davis is the student who gave me information when I wrote Koch brothers helped create a “culture of fear” at Wichita State University. I also reposted an article he took an interested in, Koch influence on WSU questioned at Faculty Senate, will be revisited. As far as I could tell, Davis was headed to become one of our badly needed journalists of the future. He had spent a lot of time on those stories and he was willing to take a lot of risks to put out that kind of journalism. He will be badly missed. SJ Otto
From The WSU Sunflower:
Nathan E. Davis, 23, died over the weekend in his apartment near Wichita State University.
Davis was born Dec. 22, 1993. He lived in Lawrence, Kansas, before moving to Wichita for college.
Davis studied psychology at Wichita State. He had intentions to switch to a communications major.
He started work at The Sunflower as a reporter in August. Davis reported on campus issues and politics.
Davis additionally picked up work as a cook at Shocker Grill and Lanes in the Rhatigan Student Center in the fall of 2016.
Davis will be remembered as a friend of his colleagues at The Sunflower. His character gave us lots of laughs and loads of memories.

Davis is the man in the middle.
