Wallie Funk recived anaward in 1972 for community Searvices for:"A magnificently conducted newspaper campaign to achieve a politcal goal."He elected 4 city concilmen and a Mayor. The mayor nearver had another opponent in the next five elections while Funk was the editor.
The Mayor was part time work in those days.He and his bother ran the lagest realestate/insurance business in town, Nothing was ever written in the WN-T that would indicate there might be a conflict of interst--even when the attorney general said he must give back to the City the profit he made from sellimg insurance to the City
The UofW standards for Hall of Fame are very low.
