WWII Veteran Harry Furr

Featured in Preserving History

The Memorial Day weekend isn't just a chance to revel in an extra day off from work. First and foremost, it's a day to honor those who have served their country. In 2007, ONR host Dick Pryor spoke with World War II veteran Harry Furr about his experiences as a glider pilot, and his first day on the job--in Normandy on D-Day. Furr passed away on Wednesday, May 23rd. He may be gone, but his service and sacrifice will not be forgotten.

Preserving History Woolaroc (5:31)

Featured in Preserving History

When Frank Phillips established Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville in 1917 the price of oil had just jumped from 40-cents to a dollar a barrel. A far cry from today's price of eighty dollars a barrel for west Texas intermediate crude, but it was enough to make Phillips a multi-millionaire. The visionary businessman enjoyed his wealth to the fullest, building a mansion in Bartlesville and a country home known as the Woolaroc lodge ranch house. Today it stands just as it was nearly a century ago and visitors are invited to hear the stories of a man who helped build Oklahoma.
