Photojournalism Hall of Fame induction is October 20, 2016

The Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame in Columbia, Mo., will induct four award-winning innovators and teachers of photography and journalism on Oct. 20.

This will be the 12th group of inductees since the founding of the Hall of Fame in 2005. Inductees are Tom Strongman of Kansas City; Robert LaRouche of St. Louis; the late Thomas Benton Hollyman; and the late Roy Emerson Stryker.

Photographs made by the inductees will be on display during the 4 p.m. ceremony and reception in the Palmer Room at the Reynolds Journalism Institute on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia. Those photographs will join the Hall of Fame’s collection of work by inductees.

The Photojournalism Hall of Fame was founded at the urging of Bill Miller Sr., publisher of the Washington Missourian twice-weekly newspaper, to recognize outstanding contributors to visual communication with ties to Missouri. Miller, along with his father and a brother, has since been inducted into the Hall of Fame as well.
