Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame
Joe C. Jackson, Denzil D. Garrison,
Alice Tyner Timmons, and
Robert F. Read, Sr.
By Linda D. Wilson
Since 1993 the Oklahoma Historical Society has annually 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, interpre-
tation, and dissemination of Oklahoma history. This criteria was
first published in The Chronicles of Oklahoma, 72 (Summer, 1994).
Early honorees included Grant Foreman, Joseph B. Thoburn,
Muriel H. Wright, Edward Everett Dale, and Angie Debo. In addi-
tion to historians, the award has been bestowed on artist Charles
Banks Wilson, Cherokee genealogist Emmet Starr, author John Jo-
seph Mathews, and Apache and educator Mildred Imach Cleghorn.
The inductees are honored at the Awards Banquet held during the
Oklahoma Historical Society's Annual Meeting in April each year.
In April 2006 Joe C. Jackson, Denzil D. Garrison, Alice Tyner
Timmons, and Robert "Bob" F. Read, Sr., were inducted into the
Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame. (The accompanying photos
were produced by Fred Marvel).
Joseph "Joe" C. Jackson, educator, received his Ph.D. from the
University of Oklahoma in 1950. As an historian he has focused on
education in Oklahoma, beginning with his dissertation entitled
"The History of Education in Eastern Oklahoma from 1907 to 1915."
