(DANA) - A group dedicated to preserving Ernie Pyle's legacy as one of America's most famous World War II news correspondents is planning a fundraiser in western Indiana.

The Tribune-Star reports the Friends of Ernie Pyle are sponsoring the event May 19 at the South Vermillion High School auditorium in Clinton. The fundraiser for a museum in the correspondent's name will feature a one-man drama followed by a Terre Haute-based troop that recreates the "Golden Age of Radio" with musical and theatrical presentations.

Pyle was born and raised in Dana, a rural community in Vermillion County about 70 miles west of Indianapolis. Friend of Ernie Pyle took control of the site from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and Indiana State Museum after the state closed it in 2009.
