Experiencing Drought in the Grasslands of the American West

Oral Histories

To date, we have completed ~60 oral histories with residents of both Cimarron and Union Counties. These oral histories explore residents’ unique frontier and Dust Bowl histories, as well as the rich ranching and farming traditions in these communities.

Status: We are currently transcribing these oral histories, please check back later. Content coming soon.

In the meantime, you can check out the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program (OOHRP) office webpage, where all of the “donated” oral histories will eventually be located.
