(prices range from 95.00-190.00 a roll). Tulsa's Central Library has copies of almost all of the early Tulsa City Newspapers and microfilm of The Tulsa World and Tulsa Tribune. They will do look-ups in these papers for a fee and/or will do look-ups and send copies through Inter-Library Loan (much cheaper if you are out of state).
