A welcome from the State Records Administrator

The late Angie Debo wrote that:

"Any state of the American Union deserves to be known and understood. But Oklahoma is more than just another state. It is a lens in which the long rays of time are focused into the brightest of light. In its magnifying clarity, dim facets of the American character stand more clearly revealed. For in Oklahoma all the experiences that went into the making of the nation have been speeded up. Here all the American traits have been intensified. The one who can interpret Oklahoma can grasp the meaning of America in the modern world." [Debo, Angie. Oklahoma: Foot-loose and Fancy-free. Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1949, vii]

Records created and received by Oklahoma state government during the conduct of the public's business are a unique and indispensable reservoir of information. Many of these records, including the official papers of Oklahoma's governors, Supreme Court case files, and legislative bill files, are of immense value to historians, political scientists, and others seeking to document and interpret Oklahoma history.Photo of Susan McVey, State Records Administrator
