The Oklahoman Archives used for more than research

By Alan Herzberger Published: November 23, 2004
I thought it would be a good idea to search for various names that might have appeared throughout history.

Since I have no Oklahoma City ancestry, it was unlikely that I'd find such a cool name like Herzberger in the system.

I was wrong.

It turns out that A.C. Herzberger was a three-time Big Seven Conference wrestling champion in the 1930s. At least that's what a story published in 1944 described when Herzberger entered the AAU tournament at the Oklahoma City YMCA.

But there were almost no other Herzbergers in the archives until I came to town, of course.

But think of the possibilities.

If your family has been in the Oklahoma City area for generations, you are bound to find some cool items in our archives. It's worth checking out, if only for one day for $8.95.

The Oklahoma Archives is cheap entertainment for the historically amused. has disabled the comments for this article.
