Tillotson inducted into newspaper Hall of Fame


Dolph Tillotson, who, during a career spanning nearly 50 years has earned a reputation for developing hard-edge community newspapers, was among four journalists inducted last Friday into the Texas Newspaper Foundation Hall of Fame.

Additional inductees were: Victor Fain, former publisher of The Daily Sentinel in Nacogdoches, who died in 2000 at age 84; John C. Taylor Jr., former Seguin Gazette owner and publisher, who died in 2014 at age 88; and longtime Associated Press correspondent Mike Cochran.

Established in 2006, the Hall of Fame honors up to four visionaries, innovators and community builders of all eras, according to the organization.

Tillotson retired as president and publisher of The Galveston County Daily News in 2011 and now serves as president of Southern Newspapers Inc., a private company that owns The Daily News and 14 other community newspapers.
