Name of creator
Founded by the National Hockey League and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association on September 10, 1943, Kingston's International Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum is the original hockey hall of fame and the oldest sports hall of fame in Canada. Captain James T. Sutherland of Kingston spearheaded the bid to bring the Hockey Hall of Fame to Kingston and was inducted into the hall in 1947 - one of the first forty-two members inducted into the hall during the Kingston-era.
Capt. Sutherland died in 1955 and never realized his dream of seeing the hall of fame built in Kingston. Fifteen-years after initially awarding the Hall of Fame to Kingston, N.H.L. President Clarence Campbell withdrew support in 1958 and Toronto was awarded the hall of fame. Despite a major setback, the Kingston organizing committee moved forward and the International Hockey Hall of Fame finally opened in 1965 in a brand new building on the Kingston Memorial Centre grounds at the corner of York and Alfred Streets.
In 1992, an agreement was reached with the International Ice Hockey Federation to have the Kingston shrine become the International Ice Hockey Federation Museum. That partnership was abandoned in 1997 and since that time, the Kingston hall had been known as the International Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum. On January 1, 2003, the operating name was changed back to International Hockey Hall of Fame, in part to help celebrate 60th anniversary celebrations.
