Hall of Fame Member

Charles Nedwin “Ned” Hockman

Inducted: 1988

CHARLES NEDWIN “NED” HOCKMAN (1921-2009) has been a pioneer in photojournalism – both in still photography and motion picture photography – in Oklahoma and within the U.S. Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force. The highlights of his work at the University of Oklahoma and elsewhere and a recital of his awards would require a book for the telling. The John A. Sprague Memorial Award, which he received in 1985, cites Hockman as “a true Leader who has given a lifetime of contributions to the art of visual reporting.”
