The Oklahoma Historical Society plans to announce the donation of the film and video archives of an Oklahoma City-based media company.

Historical Society Executive Director Bob Blackburn plans to announce the details of the donation from Griffin Communications during a news conference Wednesday at the state Capitol.

Blackburn said in a news release that the donation of the archives is intended for a planned museum of popular culture in Tulsa. Blackburn is lobbying the Legislature to approve a $42.5 million bond issue to help pay for construction of the museum, but the proposal is facing resistance from Republican lawmakers, especially in the House, who oppose any type of state debt.

Previous donations to the planned museum include items from American Western swing musician Bob Wills and blues rocker Leon Russell.
