Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME provisions of the 1962 resolution. Although the first six newsmen of yesteryear to be so-honored were commemorated at the 1962 convention, no exhibit of those men or others subsequently placed in the Hall of Fame was created for thirteen years. It remained for then-Governor Calvin L. Rampton to allocate space in the state capitol building for a suitable display. At a cost of $23,000, it was constructed at USPA's expense and was dedicated on February 13, 1976 during the Winter Convention. Glenn Bjornn of the Salt Lake Times, whose appeal to his personal friend, the governor, had helped to secure the capitol space, gave opening remarks at the ceremony and the program was in charge of master of ceremonies Jim Cornwell. The madrigal singers of Granger High School provided appropriate musical selections and the dedicatory prayer was offered by Monsignor William McDougall, a one-time Salt Lake City journalist. Founding chairman A. B. Gibson and Governor Rampton were speakers. After a roll call of Hall of Fame inductees, the closing prayer was offered by Joel J. Dunn. In 1990 a general rearrangement of the capitol building's display area was instituted and the Hall of Fame exhibit was removed. With ex-Governor Rampton joining press officers in appealing the decision, Gov. Norman Bangerter approved space for a new Hall of Fame display, which was dedicated on Thursday, May 16, 1991. Brent Sumner of the Orem-Geneva Times was UPA's president and Kenneth G. Adams of the Morgan County News was master of ceremonies. In his remarks, Mr. Rampton, the principal speaker, said "I've had considerable experience with the press and I can assure you the press in Utah fulfills beautifully its responsibility in the democratic form of government. It is absolutely essential if you're going to have a democratic form of government to have a free and informed press." Jim Cornwell, who had succeeded A. B. Gibson as chairman of the Hall of Fame committee in 1975, reviewed its history and progress. John W. (Jack) Gallivan, publisher emeritus of the Salt Lake Tribune, read into the record The Journalist's Creed in lieu of a prayer, since prayer was now banned from public buildings.
