Ft. Gibson

Gateway to the West

By: C. W. "Dub" West (c) 1974

Muskogee Publishing Company, Muskogee, OK 74401

Dub West (deceased) wrote several books of which Fort Gibson: Gateway to the West is one. This book was privately published by Muskogee Publishing Company in 1974. There were only 1,000 copies of the book printed and it is almost impossible to find a copy.

The book is 266 pages with a name index. The photos in the copy I borrowed from the library in Tulsa are very dim and I'm not sure how well they will copy.

Update: Carolyn Brown has a copy of this book and has graciously offered to make copies for those who would like to have them. Please be kind enough to pay for the cost of copies and postage.

The 3 places I know that you can obtain copies of the articles (or photos) from the book are: Ft. Gibson Library, Muskogee Library and the Tulsa County Library. I don't know what the cost of copies are from Ft. Gibson or Muskogee but you can order copies from the Tulsa Library through inter-library loan and you will only be changed the cost of the copies which is something like 50 cents a copy. Do not send a request directly to the Tulsa Library as there is a 10.00 surcharge for out of state requests. Use Inter-Library Loan through your own local library and only pay for the copy charge.

On the following pages I have abstracted the names of those people who were around prior to approximately 1920 and have not listed the later names. I have only transcribed a few of the articles completely so as to stay within the rules of Copyright. The first few chapters of this book are devoted to the early military people at the Fort. I did not abstract any of those names unless they contained information about a marriage or death.
