The Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture Series

The Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture Series was established in 1966 by the late Howard H (Tim) Hays, then editor of The Press-Enterprise, in cooperation with the University of California, Riverside. In 1997, his son Tom Hays endowed the lecture and the Hays name was added to the title in honor of Tim Hays. Dallas-based A.H. Belo Corporation, former owner of The Press-Enterprise, has provided generous support for the Lecture Series. The intent of the Hays Press-Enterprise Lecture Series is to bring to Riverside each year someone of exceptional achievement in journalism to address important topics related to the news media, thereby furthering the knowledge and interests of both the university and the community at large.

Howard H "Tim" Hays, Jr. was the longtime owner and publisher of The Press-Enterprise newspaper. He spent 51 years at the family-owned business, leading the paper to a Pulitzer prize and two important Supreme Court victories. In addition to Tim Hays’ role as publisher of Riverside County’s largest newspaper, he was a leader in the Citizens University Committee that successfully lobbied the state legislature to open a University of California campus in Riverside in 1954. Tim Hays served as a founding member of the UCR Board of Trustees; supported the creation and collections of the UCR/California Museum of Photography; established an endowed scholarship fund in honor of his father; and endowed a faculty chair to support the UCR Honors program.
