One of the unique resources in the Research Center's OK Room is the extensive vertical file collection. Vertical files contain newspaper and magazine articles, brochures, reports, and ephemera for businesses, organizations, homes, buildings, events, and people in the area.
Newspaper articles, covering topics of local and regional interest, were selectively chosen from Tulsa’s major metropolitan dailies of the twentieth century and deposited in subject-based vertical files. This is the only major index in Tulsa for the Tulsa Tribune and for the Tulsa World before 1989. For more information on newspaper and periodical articles, please see our Local History in the Research Center guide.
Depending on the person, there may be content in our biography vertical files.
