Those showers didn't amount to much in the Northwest.

On the Road Again

Vol 9, Iss 46 Ooops!,,,, It was 2:00 a.m. when I pushed the button on my database to publish what I thought was this week's newsletter. BUT... As it turned out, that wasn't so. I think the first earlier mailing you received might have mentioned Vol. 9, Iss. 1. If this ever happens again, remember this link for the OkieLegacy Ezine frontpage and bookmark on your browser.

I'm back in SW Colorado this afternoon (2:00 p.m. MST) and getting ready to correct that first mailing by sending you out the correct Vol. 9, Iss. 46 of The OkieLegacy. What can I say? We can't be perfect all the time, huh? Besides... at 2 a.m. this morning I'm not sure what I was doing -- sleeping? Publishing?

Pioneer Lynn G. White - Alva Daily & Weekly Review

Vol 10, Iss 1 Here is a little tidbit about the republican newspaper, that we call today the Alva Review-Courier that I found on pg. 1525, A Standard History of Oklahoma, by Thoburn. Lynn G.

Mr. White had shown the technical, executive ability, the progressive policies and the civic loyalty that had not only made him distinctively successful in his chosen field of enterprise but had also given him secure vantage ground as one of the representative newspaper men of Oklahoma.
