The University of Oklahoma's Western History Collections were established in 1927 to gather and preserve records for scholarly research in anthropology, Native American studies, Oklahoma history and the history of the American West. This guide describes manuscript collections which include papers from pioneers and later prominent citizens including businessmen, educators, Native American leaders, historians and anthropologists. The manuscripts cover a variety of subjects such as cowboys and the cattle industry, the Five Civilized Tribes, frontier life, missionaries in Indian Territory, the oil industry and the history of transportation in the West.
Moving away from orthodox narratives of the Raj and British presence in India, this book examines the significance of the networks and connections that South Asians established on British soil. Looking at the period 1858-1950, it presents readings of cultural history and points to the urgent need to open up the parameters of this field of study.
