County Pioneers


The Indian and Pioneer Interviews of Oklahoma was a project of the Works Progress Administration, which was active during the depression era. While these interviews were made during the 1930's, these older people were talking about their early life in Indian and Oklahoma Territories, their families and neighbors. These are some of the most valuable resources for true Oklahoma history.

Listed below are some interviews that have been extracted from the Oklahoma Pioneer papers.  I may have missed some for the county.
Please let me know if I did, so that I can add them to the following list.
