See the results of Dr. Bull’s investigation and eventual vindication in the movie released in 1933. (Note: A silent movie was originally planned for...

Two Ways of Winning

The lessons I’ve learned over the past decade are too many to count. Ten years ago I found my way to a small regional university that overlooks a tapestry of legacy, heritage, tradition, progress, and possibility formally known as Claremore, Oklahoma. It was my third and final attempt to complete my college degree. Now, a decade later, I’ve returned Rogers State University as a staff member. Of the many lessons I’ve weathered during this season, one truth has settled into my bones. There are two ways of winning. Some only win when others lose. Others seek to win by helping others succeed. The most rewarding opportunities in my life have developed through answering the question, “What can I contribute?” as opposed to, “What can I achieve?” History demonstrates two ways to change the world: with the pen (the use of ideas) or with the sword (the use of power). Trust me, it feels great to...
Stephanie Hunter has immersed herself in not only Will Rogers’ lore but also traditions of the times of his birth and childhood on an Indian Territory ranch. Taking on the mantle of activities and education manager of the Will Rogers Memorial Museums, she was plunged into her first big event during the Will Rogers & Wiley Post Fly-In. “Stephanie has an energy and passion that will help us share Will Rogers with others, help us with all the events we have throughout the year. She has built a team of ‘Hands-on Historians,’ passionate volunteers that want to present life in the 19th century,” said Tad Jones, Museums’ executive director. The Claremore-Sequoyah graduate joined the Museum staff in 2015 at the admissions desk. Wanting to know more about the Museum and Will Rogers, she participated in the Roper-docent training program — and in September, she will be sharing lead in a docent-training program...
