Inducted: 1996

ROBERT E. LEE (1931-2014) wrote a highly acclaimed column three days a week for the Daily Oklahoman, serving as senior editor of Community. Born into a newspaper family, he worked for the Harper County Journal and held managerial positions in Woodward and Enid as well as on the Oklahoman. His record of volunteerism, especially in Lions Club International, is inspirational and caused him to be known around the world. His love for journalism prompted him to say, “I’ve never worked a day in my life. I’ve always been a newspaperman.”
