Buelow receives award

The man responsible for establishing the university's sports information office, and a major player in the formation of the Athletic Hall of Fame, received the 1995 Stout Distinguished Service Athletic Award.

Charles Buelow, who served as director of University Relations from 1968 until his retirement in 1992, received the award at Hall of Fame ceremonies held Nov. 4.

Buelow was instrumental in developing what is now the Office of University Relations. The office oversees legislative relations, community relations, business relations, universitywide publications, media relations and special projects for the chancellor.

It was out of that office that Buelow established the sports information office in 1968. Buelow functioned in a many-faceted capacity, serving as the sports information director until 1985.

Buelow also played a major role in establishing the Hall of Fame in 1978. In addition, he was pom pon adviser for many years.
