By Larry O'Dell*
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, 109 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 Imoch Cleghorn.
The inductees are honored at the awards banquet held during the
annual Oklahoma History and Preservation Conference in April
each year. In April 2019 Dianna Everett, Helen Freudenberger
Holmes, Emmy Scott Stidham, and Mary Jo Watson were inducted
into the Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame.
