White Castle Inducts Its Most Dedicated Fans Into Cravers Hall of Fame

From California to New York, from Texas to Minnesota men and women are coming to Columbus to be honored for their love of small hamburgers. White Castle is inducting 13 new cravers to the Cravers Hall of Fame on November 16 at their headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. The ceremony will be followed by a private dinner at the Ohio Historical Socciety.

The White Castle corporate archives, which includes business records, photographs, advertising materials, motion picture films and audio recordings, is housed at the Ohio Historical Society Archives/Library and available to researchers. A selection of over 500 images of photographs and advertising materials from the archive is available online in the White Castle Digital Collection that is part of the Ohio Memory digital library. Additionally, there is a small exhibit about the history of White Castle on the museum floor.

White Castle created the “Cravers Hall of Fame” in 2001. However, there are photographs in the archives that show us people of all ages have been craving White Castle for decades.
