Recreation and Park Hall of Fame. (Recroom)


During the NRPA Congress in Denver, Colorado, Robert Moses and Robert W. Crawford were inducted into the Recreation and Park Hall of Fame. The following provides the criteria for being inducted into the Hall of Fame as well as biographical sketches of this year's inductees.

The Recreation and Park Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made outstanding and lasting contributions to the advancement of recreation and parks in the United States. The Joseph Lee Memorial Library Committee initiated the Hall of Fame. The National Recreation and Park Association and the American Academy of Park and Recreation Administration, with the support of the National Recreation Foundation, jointly sponsor the Hall of Fame.

To be selected, the nominee must meet the following criteria:

* Have made an outstanding and lasting contribution to the advancement of the park and recreation movement in the United States.

* The contributions must have been made in relationship to the mission of the National Recreation and Park Association and its parent organizations.

* Selection to the Hall of Fame is a posthumous honor. No nominee shall be considered until at least five years following death.

* Nominees will be considered for their contributions to the recreation and park field warranted by historical review and evaluation of long-term impact upon the recreation and park movement without regard to race, sex, religion, or age.

The Hall of Fame is open to the public and special commemorative plaques are on display at the National Recreation and Park Association headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia.
