Hall of Fame Member

Milton W. Reynolds

Inducted: 1971

MILTON W. REYNOLDS (1833-1890) was a key figure in getting Oklahoma opened to settlement through a 20-year crusade in his own and other newspapers as well as his personal appearances before presidents, governors and senators. He founded eight Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma newspapers, including the oldest publication in Oklahoma, the Edmond Sun. The fiery crusader helped organize the press associations of the same three states, and was elected to the legislatures of all three, but he died before the first session in the Oklahoma Territory.
