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 Ku Klux Klan.[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 the 300 block W. Maryland Street at Capitol Avenue in downtown Indianapolis. The Times building is long gone, but the marker honors the location.[2]
