Images of America: Duncan and Stephens County Oklahoma

A pictorial retrospective of the area

Historical images of Oklahoma’s earliest and most productive oil fields are found in this book, written by two Duncan men who both shared a passion for history and also who were leaders within the community.

This book, which took months and months of research shows some of the area’s earliest beginnings, in which Duncan and Stephens County (Oklahoma) played a major role in the development of America’s oil industry.

Through historic images, this book focuses on the two themes that emerge from the area’s past. Using many images from the archives of the Stephens County Historical Museum, they wanted to represent the community and oil industry and how the two areas affected each other.

First, the settlement, growth, and development of communities with strong, progressive pioneer heritage; and second the discovery of oil in the late teens, and the development of a petroleum industry with a worldwide reach and impact.

Written by Chris Jefferies, Ph.D. and PeeWee Cary.

Our picks for favorite images in this book: Illustration of Duncan Store, a cattle drive cowboy camp and a Fourth of July parade in Duncan, showing the horses making their way through town.

 

Dr. Jefferies (1939-2014) was the original director (1998-2005) of the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, which opened in 1998. Roy ‘PeeWee’ Cary died in 2018. He had served as director of a neighboring museum, the Stephens County Historical Museum, for many years, after a career as staff photographer for the local paper, The Duncan Banner, and then for Halliburton.
