Digging up old stories in The Oklahoman’s Archives
I received an email the other day from a woman with a very simple question.
She was researching an historic event in her family history in the 1930s. …
“I know there was a lot of news coverage. How can I access this information?”
I knew how she could access it. And I knew who could help her the most — The Oklahoman’s News Research Editor Linda Lynn.
Here was Linda’s response:
“There are numerous stories in The Oklahoman Archives about the story you mention. If you would like to subscribe to our online database, contact (405) 475-4000. If you are a resident of Oklahoma, you might contact your local library, since members of some metropolitan libraries have free access.”
Linda, of course, was referring to The Oklahoman Archives, something I’ve written about in the past and something news research specialist Mary Phillips blogs about often.
