The UW-Oshkosh Hall of Fame was established in 1974 to pay tribute and give deserved acknowledgement to former athletes, coaches and friends of the University. It is also intended to enhance school tradition by honoring those people who have exhibited exceptional ability or given distinctive recognition to the UW-Oshkosh athletics program while on campus or since graduation.
The first UW-Oshkosh Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held April 28, 1974, at The Pioneer Inn & Marina. The five inductees were Edward Boguski, Ed Hall, Burton Karges, Robert Kolf and Robert Williams.
Four venues have hosted UW-Oshkosh’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony – The Pioneer Inn & Marina (1974-2001), Hilton Garden Inn (2002), UW-Oshkosh’s Reeve Memorial Union (2003-13) and UW-Oshkosh’s Alumni Welcome & Conference Center (2014-Present).
The UW-Oshkosh Hall of Fame inducts new members each fall in UW-Oshkosh's Alumni Welcome & Conference Center. Any former athlete, coach or individual who has made a recognizable contribution to the UW-Oshkosh athletic program is eligible for nomination. Athletes must have graduated and completed competition ten years or more prior to consideration. Past UW-Oshkosh coaches and athletic administrators may also be nominated. Deceased nominees will also be considered. Nominations should be sent to UW-Oshkosh Sports Information Director Kennan Timm.
