D.C. "Clancy" Frost

Inducted: 1973

D.C. “CLANCY” FROST (1908-1965) spent more than two decades proving his “independent country newspaper,” the Kiowa County Star-Review of Hobart, could achieve the same quality of reporting, editing and editorial excellence as a newspaper of any size. Eight times his newspaper won state fair sweepstakes for general excellence. He won the Oklahoma Editorial of the Year award for fighting federal aid to education, and the national Herrick Editorial Award for opposing the U.S. Army’s attempts to take over one-third of his county for a missile range. He served as president (1962-63) and long-time director of the Oklahoma Press Association.
