A staunch conservative, John N. Happy Camp represented Oklahoma's Sixth District from 1969-1975. His photo collection contains black-and-white and color prints of him with his family, with constituents, with Apollo astronauts including Neil Armstrong, with Soviet Union Ambassador Dobrynin (in Native American headdress), with President Richard Nixon, President Gerald Ford, and Vice-President Spiro Agnew. Also depicted are the Science and Astronautics Committee visit to the Rockwell facility in Tulsa; Nixon campaigning in Enid (1972); Five Civilized Tribe officers (1971); Camp's political campaigns (including shots of the "Happy Camper" automobile); trips to Antarctica (1970), the San Francisco Presidio (1970), Europe (1971), Japan and Soviet Union (1973), and the Natchez Trace (1973); the dedication of the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System (1971); Oklahoma floods (1968-1973); and Oklahoma dams. There is also a notebook of photographs on Oklahoma soil conservation programs and numerous NASA shots of planets, the moon, and Space Shuttle proposals. There is an item-level inventory for this collection. For reproduction fees and guidelines, consult fee guidelines and policies governing the use of photos.
