R H Ring
Arizona Daily Star reporter R.H. Ring spent 10 days posing as a maximum-security convict at Arizona's Florence State Penitentiary. Very few people in the prison system knew of his stay, not even Florence's warden. This article won an award from Investigative Reports and Editors (IRE) and an American Bar Association Gavel Award. It was published in a tabloid called "The Convicted" as a special supplement to the Ariozona Daily Star, along with other Star reporters' stories on Arizona's corrections system. Ring's colleague John Long posed as a corrections officer. His story "Holding Down the Fort" was also included in "The Convicted."
