Mission

The Founders Legacy Room and Archives collect materials related to the history of OU-Tulsa, including personal and business papers, publications, artifacts and memorabilia, and more. We also collect materials documenting the history of medical education in the Tulsa area. These collections are for use by students, the academic community, and external researchers. As part of the Schusterman Library, the Archives support research, scholarship, and learning on campus and throughout the broader Tulsa community.
