Hall of Fame Member

Mary Goddard

Inducted: 1992

MARY GODDARD (1924-1991) was a leading force for the improvement of Oklahoma journalism from the time she was a teenager until her death at age 66. After beginning her news career on the Lawton Constitution in 1943, she went to work in Oklahoma State University’s publications office in 1951. After joining the Oklahoman and Times 18 months later, her flair for writing and editing during the next 33 years became legendary. These skills, which won numerous awards, were exceeded only by her ability as a teacher and writing coach for young journalists.
