The 5,000 square-foot memorial features exhibits that tell the story of Cronkite’s legendary career with CBS news, as well as details about his personal life and passions. 

It is located in the Spratt Hall Atrium at Missouri Western State University.

The Walter Cronkite Memorial was the vision of Missouri Western faculty and staff to create a fitting memorial to St. Joseph’s beloved native son and one of the most important and trusted voices in our country’s history.
