THE CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA
* NOTES AND DOCUMENTS
H all of Fame
John Carmichael, Clyde Ellis,
John Erling, and Paul Lambert
By Larry O'Dell and Elizabeth M. B. Bass*
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, 101 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 2017 John Carmichael, Clyde Ellis, John Erling,
and Paul Lambert were inducted into the Oklahoma Historians Hall
of Fame. The inductees are featured in this issue of The Chronicles.
