Biographical or Historical Data:
Robert Wayne Guthrie (1896-1977) was an Indiana newspaperman. Born in Nashville, he graduated from Columbus High School in 1915. After his studies were interrupted due to World War I, he returned to Indiana University to study law. In 1921 Guthrie joined the staff of the Indianapolis News. He served as the city editor for 14 years, but he is best known for his column, "Ringside in Hoosierland," which he wrote from 1947 until shortly before his death. "Ringside in Hoosierland" was mainly concerned with Indiana history and legends, such as how certain towns and cities got their names, and ancedotes about early Hoosier life. Guthrie was an active Mason and a member of Kiwanis International. He was twice named a Sagamore of the Wabash and was inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame in 1973.
