Hall of Fame Member

William Russell Moore

Posthumously Inducted: 2020-2021

WILLIAM RUSSELL MOORE (1910-1950) probably never heard of Korea as a boy in Nowata, Oklahoma. But, after starting at The Oklahoman, he would join The Associated Press and distinguish himself as a war correspondent who gave his life helping wounded American soldiers. He was one of 90 correspondents killed during the Korean War. He served in the Army for four years during World War II and was promoted to the rank of major before being discharged.
