The Indianapolis Times was an evening newspaper that served the city of Indianapolis, Indiana, from the late 19th century to 1965 when the paper ceased publishing. The Times received a Pulitzer Prize in 1928 for Public Service when it ran an article that exposed political corruption in the state and the KKK.[1]

The Indianapolis Times began as the Indianapolis Sun in 1878 and ceased publication on October 11, 1965. At the time of its demise, the paper was owned by Scripps-Howard. There is a historical marker located at the site of the Times building in downtown Indianapolis. The Times building is long gone, but the marker honors the location. [2]
