The Journalism Honor Medal sponsored by Ohio State University’s School of Journalism and Communication commemorates the career of Robert F. Wolfe, publisher of the Ohio State Journal and the Columbus Dispatch until his death in 1927. This uniface artist’s strike, or sample, represents the reverse of the true medal, and features a pyramid with a torch at the apex symbolizing the light of wisdom.
