I was sorry to hear about his passing. I fondly remember reading his "Those Were the Day" articles in the Saturday evening Indianapolis News. I have since received 3 of his books which I read over and over.

Our dad, Harmon Allison, always enjoyed it when Wendell stopped by his Standard Oil filling station on In. St. in Mooresville. He was proud to know him. Kay, Lynne & Jane Allison

It was great being neighbors with you and your family and the Prudens. We were so young and sharing life. Reading your books gave us an appreciation of life and Indiana. We may live in South Carolina now but my heart is always in Indiana. Fabin and Girls we are sorry for your loss.

My Uncle, Wendell Trogdon, was a good newsman and more importantly a good man. As the son of his sister Martha, whose family left the Hoosier-fold for the dream that was the California of the early 1960's, I'll never forget him. "You could take the boy out of Indiana, but not the Hoosier out of the boy." Thanks for your love and support over the years, Uncle Wendell.

Wendell Trogdon changed my life. He gave me my break In 1978 when he hired me as a newsroom artist at The Indianapolis News. I was 21. He never treated me like an employee. He treated me like a son. I will miss him greatly.

RIP Wendell. Your love of Indiana high school basketball and especially Bedford North Lawrence basketball will be missed. It was what got me acquainted with you during my time with the Indianapolis News.

Wendell hired me as a free-lance visual art critic in December 1971, and then added TV log person (replacing the late, great Dennis Hanshew), TV Timne editor, Free Time editor, TV critic, leading eventually to theater critic of the Star after it devoured the News. Thanks you Wendell for 31 great years.

Wendell Trogdon was the best boss I ever had. He had a chance to fire me at The Indianapolis News, but didn't. He gave me another chance and some good advice. I worked hard to prove him right.

I knew Wendell through our mutual love of Indiana high school basketball. He was a nice man. Sorry for your loss.
