A "Centennial Story" is scheduled to appear on the Oklahoma News Report telling the story of Oklahoma lawman Luther Bishop. This feature is scheduled for February 2nd, and again on February 7th.
Dee Cordry, author of "Alive If Possible, Dead If Necessary", talks about Luther Bishop and his 1926 murder. Bishop was an agent of the State Crime Bureau at the time of his death.
If anyone has Cox Cable and has the additional PBS/OETA channels, they often broadcast some very interesting programs regarding Oklahoma history. There was one a month or so ago on Tulsa Times that had a story about a Tulsa police officer who, in the 1930s, invented, of all things, the first yield sign when he realized on his beat that there were intersections that were lacking stop signs and probably did not require them, but still needed some form of traffic control in order to dictate the right of way. I'm in the process of trying to obtain a transcript of the program that I hope to include in an upcoming issue of the Oklahombres Journal.
