Event:
Sports Information Director

Hall of Fame Class:
1992



A native of Rhode Island, and a MU graduate, Callahan served as sports information director at Mizzou from 1947 to 1986, establishing a national reputation for integrity. Only four men in the history of college athletics had longer tenures in the field of sports information than Callahan, and he established a national record by working 377 consecutive football games. Until 1976, when he hired his first assistant, he ran a one-man shop supplemented by student workers, many of whom developed careers in athletic administration and sports journalism largely as a result of his tutelage. Callahan was inducted into the College Sports Information Directors of America Hall of Fame in 1972, and received CoSIDA'a highest honor - the Arch Ward Award - in 1975. He co-authored Bob Broeg's book, "Ol' Mizzou: A History of Missouri Football" and edited MU's first "slick" media guide in 1950. Still lives in Columbia.
