newest classmissouri photojournalism hall of fame

 

The year 2005 marked the inaugural class of the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame. The idea, developed by William L. "Bill" Miller Sr. became a reality on Oct. 20, 2005, with the opening of a gallery in Washington, MO. The building which housed the gallery was constructed in the mid-1800s near Miller's newspaper, the Washington Missourian. Initially, the Photojournalism Hall of Fame was open with volunteer staff from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays. It displayed examples of work and a summary of each inductee's contributions.

The Washington gallery closed Dec. 2014. Plaques and a majority of the pieces held in the Washington gallery were put into archives. A limited display was temporarily setup in a hallway leading to the journalism library in the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute on the campus of the University of Missouri. The display was complete Jan. 2015 and was designed and installed by Shelby Feistner, MPA; David Rees, chair, MU photojournalism faculty; and Hany Hawasly, recent Master’s graduate in photojournalism.
 
Missouri Press Foundation is working to find a permanent location for the Photojournalism Hall of Fame. A fund of $ 40,000 has been established with the Foundation, but more fundraising will be necessary before a permanent space becomes reality.
 
To help, please contact Melody Bezenek, Missouri Press Foundation director, mbezenek@socket.net
 
A website www.photojournalismhalloffame.org has been created to house the names of past inductees and samples of their work.

Do you know a great photojournalist, with a connection to Missouri, who should be recognized for his or her work? A Photojournalism Hall of Fame nomination form can be downloaded here. Nominations must be submitted by April 30.

The Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame endeavors to recognize those people who have made outstanding contributions to Missouri photojournalism, and to provide an exhibit venue to showcase these visual reporting pioneers, and the work of current photojournalist.

Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson: Internet Vulnerabilities Remain, via Public Notice Resource Center newsletter Government officials have known about the vulnerabilities the internet faces since at least 1998, when seven young hackers – bearing names like Space Rogue, Weld Pond and Brian Oblivion – testified before the United States Senate that “any of the seven individuals seated before you” could take the internet down with 30 minutes of well-choreographed keystrokes. Fred Thompson, the Tennessee Republican who chaired the Senate panel in 1998 and left Congress in 2003, said in a recent interview that internet security is the kind of problem the government has trouble fixing. “Number one, it’s very difficult, and number two, there’s no immediate political payoff for anyone,” he said. The vulnerability of technology users at the highest levels of government is a stark reminder of the value of publishing printed versions of public notices in newspapers. The newspaper and press association websites which host public notices may also be vulnerable to being taken offline, so the online postings are best used as an adjunct to the printed notice, because printed notices remain independent, archivable,accessible and verifiable.
