'PARTNERS IN REMEMBRANCE" Brown Bag Event


OSU history professor Bill Bryans will present "Partners in Remembrance: The Oklahoma City National Memorial and the National Park Service," at the next brown bag session, sponsored by OSU's Center for Oklahoma Studies, on Wednesday, Dec. 8, from noon-1 p.m. in room 250 of the OSU Student Union.
The informal talk looks at the dual role of the people of Oklahoma City and the National Park Service in the memorialization of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building which killed 168 people and injured over 800.

The federal legislation establishing the Oklahoma City National Memorial created a unique public-private partnership to operate and manage the site. The way in which that partnership was originally constructed and how it changed over time will be the primary focus. Dr. Bryans' talk draws on his current research involving an administrative history of the Memorial being prepared for the Park Service.
