Remembering James Baughman


Professor James Baughman, of the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism and Mass Communications, passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2016. Professor Baughman was a supporter of SPJ, and participated in some of our meetings. We will miss his enthusiasm for the mission of journalism. Professor Baughman discussed “Journalism Issues – Past and Future” at our 2013 conference on Chester Wells, honoring the 1913 University of Wisconsin graduate who was elected the second national president of Sigma Delta Chi, which later became SPJ. Professor Baughman’s presentation is on the media page of that conference.
