The Hall of Fame was created in 1969. It is co-sponsored by the Memorial Hall Association, a private non-profit organization, the Henry Leavenworth Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) and the command of Fort Leavenworth. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to honor outstanding members of the Army, who after being stationed at Fort Leavenworth significantly contributed to the history, heritage and traditions of the Army. Each year nominations for the Hall of Fame are proposed by various parties and are then voted on by a committee of scholars. The nominees receiving the highest number of votes are inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony, normally held in April or May. The inductees are memorialized by a shadow box containing a portrait and an inscription. The Hall of Fame was relocated from Bell Hall to the new Lewis & Clark Center at Fort Leavenworth.
