The reprinting of "The Beginning of Tulsa" is for my children and grand children and in honor of my great grandfather, J. M. Hall, the founder of the city of Tulsa, and his majestic efforts in shaping the city of Tulsa. J. M. Hall was one of the first to do almost everything to help Tulsa to become a metropolis. The reprinting of "The Beginning of Tulsa" is a documentary of his memories of early Tulsa and his vision of the city of the future.

January 1, 1933.

We want to thank the World and the Tribune for their kindness in furnishing many of the pictures in this book. Personally we want to thank Mr. Barnett and Miss Harrington of the Tribune and Mr. Henthorne and Mr. Maher of the World.

The story of the beginning of Tulsa was written in 1927. In writing, printing and publishing the story, many errors were made. The Author has decided in order to correct and change these and to get the story in a more condensed form to have it published again with some additions.
