I have no idea whether this book is still in print or not. I do not own this book (I borrowed it from the library) so I can't do look-ups or make copies for you.
Copies of pages may be obtained from the Tulsa County Library.
The original Tulsa Spirit was a publication produced (Sep 1915-Dec 1959) by the Chamber of Commerce as a public relations magazine for Tulsa. This book draws heavily on the original Tulsa Spirit magazines for its historical information. To stay within the copyright laws - I will only transcribe snippets of information from this book - those that deal with the history and people of old Tulsa. The book is filled with old and new photos of Tulsa; comparisons of yesterday to today and is extremely interesting reading.
One note before we get underway.... In The Beginning of Tulsa Mr. Hall skips lightly over early Tulsa's unsavory side - the gambling, prostitution, outlaws, drunken cowboys, etc. The Tulsa Spirit includes those things - because they really were a part of early Tulsa.
