Mark Dolph gave a tour of the Gilcrease Museum and talked about its founder, Thomas Gilcrease. Tulsa, Oklahoma, oilman Thomas Gilcrease amassed America’s most comprehensive collection of art of the American West, as well as many historical documents and artifacts. Almost every item in the museum’s 400,000-piece collection relates to the discover, expansion, and settlement of North America, with a special emphasis on the Western frontier and American Indian material.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from March 8-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
