H all of Fame

By Paul F. Lambert*
Since 1993 the Oklahoma Historical Society has
annually honored up to four inductees, both professional and amateur,
in its Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame. Recipients are selected
on the basis of their contributions to the preservation, collection,
interpretation, and dissemination of Oklahoma history. These criteria
were first published in The Chronicles of Oklahoma 72 (Summer 1994).
To date, ninety-seven 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 2016 L. V. and
Pat Baker, Steven K. Gragert, Mike Larsen, and Arthur L. Tolson were
inducted into the Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame. The inductees
are featured in this issue of The Chronicles.
