News and Announcements
- Work is wrapping up on the Glenn English Collection and an inventory will be available soon. English served northwestern Oklahoma (6th District) from 1975 to 1994.
- We've been awarded a large processing grant from the NHPRC to arrange and describe the papers of James R. Jones, representative for the Tulsa area (1st District) from 1973 to 1987. While in Congress Jones chaired the powerful Budget committee and also sat on Ways and Means. Jones had been Chief of Staff for President Lyndon Johnson and was Ambassador to Mexico after he left Congress.
