In the late 70s and early 80s, the Junior League of Tulsa (JLT) conducted over sixty oral history interviews with Tulsans who were influential in our community’s development, who had knowledge of specific neighborhoods, buildings, or industry, or who were witness to Tulsa eras and events. JLT donated the histories to the library, and they were later converted from audio cassette to a digital format.
