Zero tolerance for flames (however, respectful, constructive criticism is o.k.),
or spam (i.e., ANYTHING that has ANYTHING AT ALL to do with money).


Most of the graphics from periodicals not in the author's personal collection,
are from the Tulsa City-County Library.

legal stuff:

To the best of my knowledge, everything on this site is either old enough to be
in the public domain, by nature uncopyrightable (e.g., historical facts), or my
original work.
By law, you have the right to take anything from the first two categories and do
anything you darn well please with it, except to claim it's your own and/or try to
restrict it by slapping a copyright on it yourself.
As for the stuff that I created and therefore hold the copyright to, don't lie and
say it's yours, don't make a direct profit from it without my written permission,
and, in general, treat it respectfully.

There is no absolute guarantee as to the accuracy of information,
although I try to use reliable sources.
There is likewise no guarantee covering any "how-to" information.
