This collection contains black-and-white prints and negatives of Wilburn Cartwright (the representative of Oklahoma's Third District from 1927-1943) as a soldier, congressman, and Oklahoma secretary of state. There are also pictures of him with his family, Congressman Jed Johnson, other members of Congress and the Oklahoma congressional delegation, and constituents. Cartwright's trips to Monticello (1920s), Haiti, Panama (1932), East Asia and Hawaii (1935), Europe (1938), Mexico (with Josh Lee, 1941) are also depicted, as is his attendance at meetings of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (1930s). There are numerous images of Oklahoma depression-era public works projects: fish hatcheries, dams, buildings, airports, roads, bridges, and tree plantings. There are also several photos of New Deal projects involving Native Americans. The collection includes portraits of Franklin Roosevelt and engravings of other presidents. An item-level inventory exists for this photo collection. For reproduction fees and guidelines, consult fee guidelines and policies governing the use of photos.
