One Hundred Years Of Oklahoma!

[One Hundred Years Of Oklahoma!]

Plenty of air and plenty of room …
Plenty of heart and plenty of hope …

These well known lyrics of the Oklahoma! song by Rodgers and Hammerstein capture the two sides of Oklahoma that make it great: nature and people.

In the same way the Oklahoma Centennial celebrates the awesome richness of the Oklahoma’s nature, and the history, culture, and achievements of its wonderful people.

As novelist Edna Ferber once said, “Almost anything can happen in Oklahoma. Almost everything has.” From the state’s early history, with land runs, frontier settlement, the oil boom, and the depression, to more recent history, Oklahomans are showing their leadership in many fields, and are looking forward with confidence to their future.

Happy Birthday, Oklahoma!
