Other members include World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle, television anchor Jane Pauley, novelist Theodore Dreiser and sportscaster Chris Schenkel.

Nelson Poynter, who owned the Times until his death in 1978, is also a member.

He sponsored a scholarship for journalism students at Indiana University that first introduced Tash to the Times as a summer intern.
