Kate Barnard is one of the most significant players in Oklahoma politics. She was the first woman elected to a state office in the country, and served as the commissioner of Charities and Collections, a position she proposed during the Constitutional Convention. This achievement is just one of many, and her legacy continues to impact Oklahomans today. The OHS Manuscript Archives include several items related to Barnard--the most important being her diary. Additional materials include biographies, newspaper articles, and research about Barnard.
Erin Brown is the curator of collections at the Oklahoma Territorial Museum and Historic Carnegie Library in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Mallory Covington is a certified archivist and supervisor of the Manuscript Archives in the OHS Research Division.
