Oklahoma Hall of Fame

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Oklahoma Hall of Fame was founded by the Oklahoma Memorial Association, a group founded in 1927 by Anna B. Korn with the purpose of establishing the hall of fame.[1] In the 1970s, the Hefner Mansion was donated to the association to house the exhibits and busts or portraits of the inductees, and the organization changed its name to the Oklahoma Heritage Association in 1971. It then moved into the former Mid-Continent Life Insurance building in Oklahoma City in 2007 where it is now part of the Gaylord-Pickens Museum. In 2015, the organization changed its name for the final time to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, in order to better represent the goals and mission of the organization.

To be eligible for induction, an individual must satisfy the following criteria:[1]

  • Reside in Oklahoma or be a former resident of the state.
  • Have performed outstanding service to humanity, the State of Oklahoma and the United States.
  • Be known for their public service throughout the state.

In 2000, the rules were changed to allow for posthumous nominations.

Busts and/or paintings of the inductees can be seen at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum in Oklahoma City. As of 2019, 706 members have been inducted since 1928, with more inducted annually.[2]
