102. [OKLAHOMA]. Archive of correspondence to and from Samuel Grant Victor, 1900-1908. Approximately 1,800 items plus printed ephemera scattered throughout the collection, a few maps, photographs & copies of photographs. Victor (1867-1934) was born in Phlashi County, Illinois, moved to Indian Territory in 1891, where he married Cherokee Delilah C. Hastings (1870-1921). He was elected chairman of the Indian Territory Republican Committee in 1901, a position he held for six years; he was also a member of the Republican Committee in Cherokee Territory. Subsequently, he was appointed a U.S. Marshall for the Southern District of Territory in April, 1908. The backdrop of this archive is the critical period in which Oklahoma was moving from a territory to a state in its own right. A more dense, detailed collection of a private individual so engaged as he was in the politics of the latter days of the Oklahoma Territory and early days of statehood would be difficult to encounter. The collection is an important research resource into the detailed, minute affairs that ultimately informed the fate of Oklahoma. Someone’s dissertation awaits. ($10,000-20,000). Sold.
