Abstract

After the death of William H. Hudnut, III, on December 18, 2016, Indiana Magazine of History editor Eric Sandweiss interviewed Senator Richard Lugar about his mem-ories of Hudnut. Bill Hudnut moved to Indianapolis in 1964 to become pastor of Second Presbyterian Church. In 1972, he began his political career with one term in the U.S. Congress and then became mayor of Indianapolis, serving from 1976 to 1992. Lugar reflected on his early political contacts with Hudnut, while Lugar was still Indianapolis’s mayor, and then commented extensively on Hudnut’s career as mayor, in par-ticular his plans for developing the city’s downtown area and transforming Indianapolis into the “amateur sports capital of the world.”
