A Brief History of Oklahoma
This research is dedicated to my two sets of grandparents:
Frank Cobb and Florence (Minesinger) Adams
Samuel Earl and Mary Ellen (Adair) Riddle
who taught me as a child to appreciate learning, and books. They, fearing that I would suffer from boredom, due to a physical disability, taught me to appreciate history, and learning. They also were the ones who taught me to love books. My "Grandma" Riddle, being a Cherokee Indian, was educated at the Eastern State Normal School, where she learned to be a teacher to her people. I thank her for leaving me the many history books which she kept, read, and loved, and which were instrumental in my becoming a bibliophile. I will forever owe them a dept of gratitude.
