The St. Louis chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has elected Ray Hartmann, founder of the Riverfront Times, as one of seven people it will induct into the St. Louis Print Hall of Fame next month.

Hartmann will join six other nominees, including Carlos Hurd (a deceased Post-Dispatch scribe who bore an uncanny resemblance to Adolph Hitler) and Mark Vittert, local businessman who never wears socks (trust me on this) and whose money helped launch the RFT and St. Louis Business Journal.

See a complete list of this year's nominees here and view past winners over at this website maintained by the Missouri History Museum.
