DANNA SUE WALKER (1941- ) has written the “People and Places” column six days a week in The Tulsa World for at least 24 years. Her column keeps readers informed about the fundraisers and events for many of the city’s nonprofit organizations, and the column is one of the reasons Tulsa is known as a caring and philanthropic city. A native of Tulsa, she graduated from the University of Tulsa. She joined The World in 1962 as society editor and left to raise her daughters before returning in 1981 to write the column. She was inducted into the University of Tulsa Communications Hall of Fame in 2005, and received the Bill Crawford Memorial Award for commitment to the arts.
