In loving memory of Henry J. “Hank” Waters III

We are heartbroken to report that legendary Missouri newspaperman and Lyceum hero Hank Waters passed away August 20, 2020 at the age of 90. Today we honor Mr. Waters, without whom there would be no Lyceum history.

Hank’s importance to The Lyceum cannot be overstated. Not only had he served on The Lyceum’s board of directors continuously since the 1960s, it is an indisputable fact that The Lyceum would not exist today without his steadfast refusal to let her fail and his enthusiasm for all of the ways in which she might flourish and expand. We send our love and condolences to Hank’s wife, Vicki, and his family.

Both the Columbia Missourian and Columbia Daily Tribune have published obituaries in honor of Mr. Waters. Here are links to each:
