About Us

The Indiana Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists established the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame in 1966 at DePauw University in Greencastle to recognize those individuals who have deep connections to Indiana as a result of their personal backgrounds, including their upbringings, and/or their careers, and who have demonstrated over the years they are journalists of the highest distinction; that their dedication to journalism has enhanced the regard others have for the profession; that their work has been of outstanding public service; and that their contributions to journalism have had a significant impact on the social, cultural, political and economic life of their communities.

The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame (a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization) appreciates the financial support of interested donors. These gifts help support the activities of the association in our induction, archival and communication programs to recognize the excellent work by Hoosier journalists throughout Indiana’s and our nation’s history.

The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame and its archives are housed at Indiana University at Franklin Hall, home of the IU Media School.
