For donations of collections for research, we welcome assistance in the following areas:

  • Collections of manuscripts, archives, and photographs: we collect original papers and photographs that document the history of the trans-Mississippi West, with emphasis on Native American tribes headquartered in Oklahoma. Please contact us at to discuss possible donations in these areas.
