PREFACE

The information contained in this publication is compiled from official sources where official records and documents could be obtained. In other respects the most reliable unofficial data has been used. Being a publication by the state, it is intended that it should be impartial and unprejudiced. In formation concerning political parties and their organization has been obtained from the authorized party officials. Effort has been made to avoid giving prepondating importance to one party over another and where such information is meager or incomplete, it is because no better could be obtained at the time of publication.

In giving this volume to the public it has been the aim to make it a book which will be desired as an addition to the libraries of the state because of its real worth. Special attention has been given to obtaining and preserving facts and historical matters which were about to become lost to the future generations of the state of Oklahoma. Owing to the lack of an historical perspective on events in Oklahoma since it became a state, the selection of the material used has of course been confined to the contemporary, and consequently could be chosen with but doubtful regret to historical value. The purpose of the book is to give Oklahomans real facts concerning their commonwealth and to, at the same time bear a message to the residents of other states who may desire to know something of Oklahoma's make-up, political, social, economic and historical.

BENJAMIN F. HARRISON,

Secretary of State.
