newest classmissouri photojournalism hall of fame

The Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame is located at #8 Second Street in Washington, Missouri. The year 2005 marked the inaugural class in the Hall that was developed by Bill Miller, Sr. That idea became a reality on Oct. 20, 2005, at the Hall of Fame's home in a building constructed in the mid-1800s near Miller's newspaper, the Washington Missourian. Initially, the Hall was open with a volunteer staff from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Cliff Schiappa of The Associated Press (retired), and David Rees of the Missouri School of Journalism were co-chairs of the inductee selection committee. Also in attendance were Doug Crews, executive director of Missouri Press Hall of Fame inducteesAssociation, Gov. Matt Blunt, who gave opening remarks and presented the inductee plaques; University of Missouri President Dr. Elson S. Floyd and School of Journalism Dean R. Dean Mills, both of whom spoke briefly. A number of state legislators and officials, local Washington officials and civic leaders, and newspaper people from around the state also attended the induction program. John Spaar, president of the Missouri Press Association, Odessa, and Tom Miller, president of the Missouri Press Foundation, Washington, attended.
