The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame, created in 1966 by the Indiana professional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), has been located since 1976 at historic East College on the DePauw campus, where the national society was founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi. The Hall recognizes those with significant Indiana ties who have demonstrated they are journalists of the highest distinction. SPJ will celebrate its 100th anniversary in the spring.
