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 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.
