1988 Hall of Fame Inductees
Robert B. Lowe
Robert B. Lowe won a 1981 Pulitzer Prize with
Arizona Daily Star colleague Clark Hallas for their
investigative report titled “Improper Use of University Athletic
Recruiting Funds.” The award, the nation’s highest honor in
print journalism, was given in the category of Local
Investigative Specialized Reporting. In the piece, the reporters
for the Tucson, Ariz.-based newspaper revealed improper use of
recruiting funds approved by a University of Arizona football
coach. After having records examined by the school’s athletic
department, the investigation – which included interviews, phone
records, airline-ticket and hotel receipts -confirmed that
several university-paid trips were made by non-prospective
recruits, which violated National Collegiate Athletic
social impact of Jackie Robinson’s inclusion into Major League
Baseball in 1947 resonates as one of the civil rights movement’s
most significant triumphs. For Robinson, the first
African-American to have the opportunity to participate in the
major leagues for the Brooklyn Dodgers, it was all about playing
the game. But, he was hand-selected by President Branch Rickey
and the Dodger organization to cross the precipitous color line.
Robinson promised Rickey that he would not fight back, other
than with his bat and glove, despite what teammates,
competitors, fans, umpires, writers, broadcasters and hotel
managers might have said or how they tried to bait him into
reacting. Robinson agreed to take on this historic civil rights
challenge and was uniquely qualified to succeed. When he crossed
the white lines at the ballpark, Robinson tried to relax and
focus on the game, not the constant cat calls.
In his debut season, he was named Rookie of the Year, an award
which today bears his name, and he became an immediate drawing
card. In his 10 seasons, Robinson was a six-time N.L. All-Star,
he was an integral part of six N.L. Pennant-winning Dodger teams
(1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956) and he won the N.L. batting
title in 1949 with a .342 average. He also won the N.L. MVP
Award in 1949. Robinson was the first African-American player to
be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.
With Robinson in attendance, the Dodgers retired his No. 42
uniform in on-field ceremonies at Dodger Stadium on June 4,
1972. All of Major League Baseball saluted him in 1997 (on the
50th Anniversary of his breaking the color barrier) and
permanently retired his number from the game.
Matthew (Mack) Robinson
"Mack" Robinson was an American athlete, setting a world record
and winning a silver medal in the Olympics. He was the older
brother of Baseball Hall of Fame member Jackie Robinson. Mack
set national junior college records in the 100 meter, 200 meter,
and long jump at Pasadena City College. He placed second in the
Western Regional Olympic Tryouts in 1936, earning himself a
place on the United States Olympic team. He went on to win the
silver medal in the men's 200 metres at the 1936 Summer Olympics
in Berlin, finishing just 0.4 seconds behind Jesse Owens.
Mack Robinson attended the University of Oregon, graduating in
1941. At the University of Oregon he won numerous titles in NCAA,
AAU and Pacific Coast Conference track meets. He has been
honored as being one of the most distinguished graduates of the
University of Oregon and is a member of the University of Oregon
Hall of Fame and the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.
Later in life, he was known for leading the fight against street
crime in his home town of Pasadena. In 1997, the Pasadena
Robinson Memorial, dedicated to both Matthew and Jackie, was
dedicated in 1997. That same year, the United States Postal
Service approved naming the new post office in Pasadena the
Matthew 'Mack' Robinson Post Office Building.
Brad Jose' Truitt
Truitt had an outstanding career in performing arts throughout
the 1970s, having appeared on television, stage, motion
pictures, magazine advertisements and records. In television, he
appeared in Medical Center, All in the Family, Cannon, Kojak and
Good Times. He was seen in the film "RPM" and performed on stage
in West Side Story and Tooth of Crime.
John Van de Kamp
Van de Kamp served two terms as California's 28th Attorney
General, from 1983 to 1991, after serving as an Asst. U.S.
Attorney and Los Angeles County District Attorney. He is perhaps
best known for his handling of the Hillside Strangler case, both
as D.A. and Attorney General, resulting in the 1983 convictions
of Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono Jr., for the serial murders
of 10 women and girls in the hills of Eagle Rock, Glendale and
Elysian Park, between October 1977 and February 1978.
He was also a member of the famous Van de Kamp family which
operated bakeries and Lawry’s Restaurants in southern
During his tenure as the state's chief prosecutor, Van de Kamp's
administration created the Public Rights Division, giving new
emphasis to environmental, consumer protection, anti-trust and
civil rights enforcement. Reorganized, renamed and expanded the
Bureau of Medical Fraud, and created a separate Correctional Law
Section within the Criminal Law Division. He helped modernize
DOJ's scientific and technological resources, including
development of the CAL-ID Program as well as the beginning
efforts at DNA forensic investigation. Sponsored the Trial Court
Delay Reduction Act and the California AIDS Drug Testing
