Overview

The hall of fame concept, once limited primarily to sports, is growing rapidly as more groups, organizations and associations are building shrines to honor their past, highlight their heroes and display their artifacts and memorabilia. It is estimated that there are at least 500 physical halls of fame throughout the world, a vast majority of them located in the United States. Whatever the actual number, this work documents more than 450 of them in more than 45 states and 15 countries.

In addition to the halls of fame that most readers would expect to find, such as the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the World Golf Hall of Fame, this work includes many more obscure halls of fame, such as the American Furniture Hall of Fame, Burlesque Hall of Fame, Cartoon Hall of Fame, Casino Legends Hall of Fame, Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame, Crayola Hall of Fame, Quackery Hall of Fame, and the World Kite Museum and Hall of Fame. The entries provide contact information, including the hall's address and telephone number, and in most instances, its fax number, website and email address, and hours of operation. The entries also alert readers to admission charges and provide a brief history of the hall and a list of notable inductees.
