Roy W. Howard Photograph Collection

Roy W. Howard’s first entry into journalism was as a paperboy delivering The Indianapolis Star each morning and The Indianapolis News each afternoon. By high school he was selling his own stories, initiating a lifetime of news gathering and reporting that would take him around the world, meeting and writing about global figures. While leading Scripps Howard Newspapers for four decades, Howard was an innovator who protected the rights of free and independent press. The Media School oversees hundreds of images taken from the early 1900s through the 1960s, documenting Roy W. Howard’s life through world travel, relationships with world leaders, and his long career as a news reporter.
