By Paul F. Lambert
Since 1993 the Oklahoma Historical Society has an-
nually honored up to four individuals, both professional and amateur,
in its Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame. Recipients are selected on
the basis of their contributions to the preservation, collection, inter-
pretation, and dissemination of Oklahoma history. These criteria were
first published in The Chronicles of Oklahoma 72 (Summer 1994). To
date, ninety-one individuals have been inducted.
Early honorees included Grant Foreman, Joseph B. Thoburn, Muriel
H. Wright, Edward Everett Dale, and Angie Debo. In addition to
historians, the award has been bestowed on artist Charles Banks Wilson,
Cherokee genealogist Emmet Starr, author John Joseph Mathews,
and Apache educator Mildred Imach Cleghorn. The inductees are
honored at the awards banquet held during the Oklahoma Historical
Society's Annual History Conference in April each year. In April 2015
Sally Bourne Ferrell, Jimmie Lewis Franklin, Edwin C. McReynolds,
and John Wooley were inducted into the Oklahoma Historians Hall of
Fame. The inductees are featured in this issue of The Chronicles.
