portrait of John Harreld
John W. Harreld (1872-1950) entered Oklahoma politics in 1919 when he was elected as the representative of Oklahoma's Fifth District in a special election. Although he opted not to seek reelection to the House, he instead ran a successful campaign and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1920 and served one term. Harreld was a member of the committees on Agriculture and Forestry, Claims, Post Offices and Post Roads, and Public Buildings and Grounds. He also chaired the Indian Affairs Committee.

 This collection consists of four items: Precedents, Decisions on Points of Order in the United States Senate, 1789-1913; Official Report of the Proceedings of the Seventeenth Republican National Convention, June 8-12, 1920; a scrapbook of bills and resolutions introduced by Harreld during the Sixty-eighth (1923-1925) and Sixty-ninth (1925-1927) Congresses; and "Speaker's Manual and Campaign Textbook," a pamphlet.

 This collection has a detailed inventory and has been entered into a computerized index. For more information on the archival holdings, please contact the Carl Albert Center.
