New Center will archive photojournalists’ work

In Association News On

The New Angus and Betty McDougall Center for Photojournalism will be dedicated at the Missouri School of Journalism in September. It will be part of the dedication program for the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute during the observance of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the School of Journalism.

Missouri Press Association will hold its Convention next fall in conjunction with some of the Journalism School’s program.

Angus McDougall was chairman of the school’s journalism sequence for several years. The center will be funded by an endowment established by the McDougalls. “I just wanted my magazine and newspaper photographs to have a permanent home and access to researchers and students,” McDougall told the Columbia Missourian.

The gift also will create the Missouri Photojournalism Archive, an online collection of photojournalistic work. David Rees, photojournalism chairman at the J School, will be the center’s director.

The archive will make available the collections of the Pictures of the Year International, College Photographer of the Year and the Missouri Photo Workshop. Work of individual photojournalists also will be archived, beginning with McDougall.

Space in Lee Hills Hall is being renovated to house the center.
