NAA Newspaper Carrier Hall of Fame

Many former newspaper carriers have achieved great success in business, entertainment, politics and the press. John Wayne, Warren Buffet and Martin Luther King Jr. are among the dozens of former carriers who are now part of the Newspaper Carrier Hall of Fame, begun in 1960 by the International Circulation Managers Association to recognize former newspaper carriers who have achieved national prominence. The hall of fame is now archived by NAA.
