1 Hendrickson, Kenneth D., Jr. Hard Times in Oklahoma: The Depression Years.
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: Oklahoma Historical Society, 1983. First Edition. 
Octavo, grey illus. boards (hardcover), 207 pp. Scattered inked marks; otherwise, a very attractive copy with minimal edgewear. From Preface: Although possessed of a colorful past deeply marked by American culture and lore, Olahoma had nevertheless been a state for only twenty-two years when the Great Depression struck. Financial and governmental institutions were still immature and ill-prepared to handle a calamity of such magnitude. Despite these shortcomings, there was no alternative but to make the attempt. The essays in this volume are designed to capture the essence of dustbowl and depression days in Oklahoma, but no effort has been made to present a comprehensive history of the New Deal. Instead, we offer glimpses of various groups and agencies, some public, some private, some state and federal -- all coping with adversity, and trying to forge a rebirth of civilization and the good life in a cauldron of disaster.
