"67 times The number of people died from the Spanish influenza, then War. It was like a medical holocaust and happened in 1917 and 18. And they were wearing masks. So John J. Dwyer, How can you stitch yesterday to today? Well, great question when it is amazing, as we've been talking about how amidst this memorable and really notorious, infamous year of 2020 with Pandemic, like most of us have never been a part of And for those that are our young. I would encourage you to not feel shaken because this is not something that just has happened in your parents Lifetime once or twice or you know your grandparent's. This hasn't happened before. The closest thing to it. Was over a century ago, the Spanish flu coming on the heels of the end of World War one. It was just one of the many sad dividends. Of the most powerful nations in the world, not finding peaceful ways to work out their differences, and we look back going. In retrospect, the reasons for war war one where real thin with the passage of time there was a lot of pride involved. There were disputes. There were massed armies were a while. We went, We built the bombs. We we built her armies. We got him in front of each other. And while there's nothing left to do, but fight well, too bad they didn't make other decisions. There were horrific consequences. Not least, is World War two we know now was pretty directly caused by World War. One number of reasons not least the Germans being crushed down so hard Hitler arising as their savior. And then if you here we go a couple of day decades later in a new war well, one of the other dividends Was this Spanish flu that arose out of the maelstrom of war war, too. So let's talk about a little bit more specifically on the home front in Oklahoma, because that's what we like to do. We like to talk about American history and world history. We like to bring it home. That's what we do. That most other folks don't go in well in Oklahoma, the first reported case of Spanish flu in Oklahoma City was a young woman named Corinne Smith, who was dying. No September 28 1918. So that was still before the armistice that ended World War one and yet by October, 1st when that's what Three days later. Oklahoma City doctors were dealing with more than 1000 cases of flu. Two days later, Justin Okay, see the number was 2000. So another vivid end of the war we were talking about a moment ago was that the mounting death toll of the flu in Oklahoma was exacerbated because so many of the state's doctors and nurses Were gone. They had left and we're on the foreign fields in France and Germany in Europe, taking care of our soldiers, So imagine this out of out of nowhere. You have one of the greatest epidemics in world history beset you. And across the world across the nation across Oklahoma, almost immediately getting down to the smallest towns we had as large as well as the largest ones. Most your doctors and nurses air gone. So talk about being left to fend for yourselves with something that you don't even know what it is. We talked about a little bit earlier. How unlike covert Even though there are certainly cases of people that Cove it seems to come on them quickly and overtake them leading to death. Most covert cases that are fatal. They say, Take a period of weeks for that when you look back to when it actually got into their system, all this this horrific Spanish flu it just jumped on people and within a day or two, sometimes hours. I had this horrific, a respiratory problems and pain and bleeding and loss of circulation and they were dead. One example just to bring it really down to the you know, Put the cookies on the lower shelf here, if you will is far as what was it like in a typical Oklahoma community Talaq Wa capital, the Cherokee Nation. They average between five and seven people per month died in 1918 leading up to the flu. Well, during the first four months of the flu between 20 and 30, people died every month in telecom multiple times the normal death toll. You mentioned the golden thread. But believe it or not, Most historians now suggest that the Spanish flu.

"Home and literally from the other side of the world. John J. Dwyer. What's the Golden Nugget? Well, there is a golden nugget and we're finishing the store here of one When farm courageous Vietnamese teenager who came to America she thought she was dying. Actually, her roommate thought she was dying. Aziz, she went into depression and sorrow upon getting to America. She called trunk farm her make dead Who was a young man? That was a friend. Of her brother's back in Vietnam. And in Juan's words, I'll continue in her words. I had become friends with him at Fort Chaffee before he went to San Antonio's for for his own financially aided college studies. Trunk knew he had to see me right away. He drove all night. And when he got to me, I began to feel better. Keep in mind. She was a Claremore Junior college. At this point, That visit was the beginning of a long distance romance for us. We eventually married. After I graduated from Claremore Junior College, we decided to move to Northeastern State University and Talic wall and finish school there. So I graduated with a business administration degree and my husband graduated as medical technologist. He then turned his medical degree at the OS, You college of osteopathic medicine. He joined the United States Army. Out of appreciation for America. Such generosity. We in our fellow students learn from Oklahomans. Since then I've had a career is a bank executive and Tulsa and my husband. Strong has had a successful medical practice. There. We have three thriving sons and we're so proud of without the Oklahomans hospitality and believing in us, we would not be who we are today. Our intention is to pay it forward. Whenever we had the opportunity. We love to help everyone just like our medical business. If we know somebody who doesn't have insurance, or they just came from Vietnam. We try to help them as much as we can. We're very involved with the Vietnamese community. And we're doing whatever we can to help everybody. We always wanted to be contributors to America, not a burden. We were so grateful to be United States citizens and couldn't wait to become part of the fabric of America. That's the end of the of the Juan Wind farm story. Well. There were so many courageous freedom loving South Vietnamese refugees who risked their lives across half the world to give their Children a life of liberty in the America who had stood up for them against the atheistic Communist They have helped build a strong 21st century Oklahoma. They have restored and reinvigorated entire neighborhoods and sections of towns and cities in our state. I want to close out with some shorter recollections of others who came on their own long voyages home to Oklahoma from Vietnam. Now of woman in restaurants. Services work in Oklahoma City, says My daughter always wants to go back to Vietnam, where she has never been. Tell her America is our country now. We give it our whole heart because it has given so much to us. Martin in the auto industry, and Norman says My four brothers fought for our freedom in the South Vietnamese army. I was too young to go. All four of them died in the war. But the Catholic Church helped me get America and a Catholic priest helped me get to Oklahoma. Live now to honor my brothers. Luna Anoke Lemus City Medical Massage therapist says I work every day. Until my hands ache, toe owner my parents who are poor people who got me out of Vietnam when the Communists came. By the way, they didn't get themselves out. Now my daughter is on an engineering scholarship and an I D League college. Tell her never to forget how fortunate she is. Then Daniel and Edmund College student My grand parents escaped South Vietnam at the end of the war. They cross the ocean on some sort of boat. It was a pretty bad experience, and they have never spoken of it. But I'm safe and I'm happy and I'm in an American college now preparing for a nightie career because of their courage. So going in this golden nugget from Oakland history, maybe a little surprising. I believe it gleams as brightly as any we've ever dug up. Few of us realized that a higher proportion of Oklahoma soldiers I'm sure very few of them wanted to be there gave their lives for their country in the Vietnam War than from any other state, but one nearly 40 per 100,000 population. In a few years ago with the conclusion of one of the America and in Vietnam history courses I've taught for many years that Southern as Oring University in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, a student asked at the end of the course. So did anything good come from that war for America. Pondered his question and my eyes landed. Brilliant and lovely, young Vietnamese American student fight.

"Operatives were enmeshed in this stranger than fiction saga. Holy crap. I'm really in trouble. There are the women who have come forward with their experiences of abuse. There's only one barrier to him getting what he wants. I'm talking to Dr Bob Blackburn. And you know what? If you don't know him, you would wish you did because he has such a passion for Oklahoma history. And it was Dr Bob Blackburn that got John J. Dwyer. To write the new textbooks. The Oklahomans part one and the soon to be released this next year of the Oklahomans, part two. So John J. Dwyer and I Fight over Who's the president of your fan club? Dr Bob Blender. But I, you know, I want to say this instrumental in planning and building the Oklahoma History Center, a 215,000 square foot museum and research center. And you've served on numerous national and regional boards and committees for the Western History Association, the Oakland Association of Professional Historians, the a leadership Oklahoma City. And somewhere in there, Okay, Pop is going to happen. But of when you look at the history center, doesn't it just make your heart sing that you were such a big part of making that happen? Well, great question and in Gwynn even to this day, and that opened in 2000 and five I like to be the last person to leave the office in the evening so I can walk through those halls by myself looking around. It still moves me When I see this building That's first class. In fact, it's probably it's I think it's the third largest in the country dedicated the state history. Although Texas's might be a bigger ours is better and have no doubt act. No doubt, no doubt, but it's given us such a platform. To do what's important to me into the historical society. First, we're collecting organization. We have been collecting Oklahoma history since 18 93 when we started collecting newspapers. And you as a journalist can appreciate the fact that you all are are asking questions every day in recording what happens. And so those newspapers providing history the state one day at a time, one community at a time. And you take the 35 million pages of newspapers and step back from it. So you have this mosaic that tells this picture. On. So willing, the collections has been probably what has satisfied me more than any other one thing to get quite. We're now average, you know, between 405 100 collections a year still coming in, even with budget cuts. And some of those collections like Lynn Johnson's The chancellor for higher education, just recently got his collection. It filled up two vans of material. That's just one of the 500 collections we get every year. Getting those in would not have been possible without the history center. It's elevated. Our profile it has brought allowed us to be both. And a Smithsonian affiliate and an affiliate of the National Archives, the only organization in the entire country that ask both And it is allowed us to really gather the material that will tell the story of Oklahoma. What's happening today? So historians 50 years from now I could look back and understand what we're going through. The history center has allowed us to accomplish so much and I'm proud of it, and we have a great team Dan Provo and Chad Williams and Carrie Howard and all the others. It's It's really been a team effort, and I've been fortunate to be part of that team. Now, As I recall, there's a great story of how the history center entered ended up there by the capital because at one time you as the sales person we're trying to find a location. So that it could be built. And many times. People just said no. Or put it in Bricktown or put it at the fair grounds or put it here, huh? Yeah, that, uh, we had been trying throughout the 19 nineties tol really get a new building. We knew the old historical building. All that was beautiful, Neoclassical built in 1930. It just could never satisfy the needs T store our prices collection, so we needed something else. I'll never forget going to Admiral John Kirkpatrick, one of my childhood friends. He own chaos, EOE when Mom was working there, and he wanted us out by the Honor Plex. Then I talked to the folks at the Wildlife Department. They wanted to sell us the old building right there. 1/20 between 19th and 20th on Lincoln tear that down to be next to hard part. Then it worked with Clay Bennett in a group about taking us downtown by the ballpark is it was being built. Well, Fortunately for us none of those happened because we got the right location right next to the state Capitol. It makes the state Capitol artifact number one when you first walk in the first thing you see is the capital. Cross the street. The legislators who provides 75% of our operating revenue to serve the people of the state, see if every day when they leave the capital. In a normal year. This is not a normal year with Kovar but normally will have 30 to 40 receptions for legislators during the legislative session that gets them into the building to see what we're doing. It's great way to have these Communication with these people explain to them what we're all about What we're trying to do. And the location has just work out perfectly for us, and it's allowed us to do that. We just brought in a new Huey helicopter. We just Herman minders, very generous business later, just in doubt and helped us out with the the crossroads of a Red River journey exhibit outside where we try to replicate. The landscape of the Red River Valley. We had that great exhibit by Allan Houser With his statue out front. It's a beautiful side of giving us room to experiment and to expand. And the building is still serving us. Very well. Of course we open in 2005. And this is our 15th anniversary that we just Completed. Unfortunately, we could not have a big party because of the cove it but we still hoped to do something soon. Have a new exhibit. We were just able to get flown Apollo spacecraft. That Oklahoma and Bill Pope piloted to the space station and back And early 19 seventies..

"Um, And rather than being a civil war, it was a very uncivil war, and that's one of the many things that I think is caught. The public's attention from this book is Just how brutal it really got in the closing chapters of Horn in the years after the war. Um so it was a very uncivil Ah figure. And you know, we talk about, for instance, some things that that are not commonly discussed in this day and time. It wasn't Walter Williams, a great African American economists. He challenges the notion that it was a civil war, he said. You know, Sibyl or something where there was a fight. For control of the government. He said that the civil war of ours the war between the states was was no more fight over control of the American government. Then the war of Independence Wass the American Revolution. It was like that fight. It was a battle from one side to to depart and declares independence from the other. So they're certainly lots of reasons and ways to debate Was that a A rightful attempt to to declare independence. That's one of the things about our book. We talked about how there were many causes of that war. Many people fought for many different reasons. Slavery, of course, was a very powerful and driving issue. It was far from the only cause. For instance, here in Oklahoma, of course, are Oklahomans book, As you Know, has nearly 40 pages just on the Civil War in Oklahoma. But here in Oklahoma A cz. You know when we talked about before the major, the great Indian Republics, charities and others creeks, some of those tribes they split in half half head factions fighting for the north and the South. They had slave owners on both sides. In other words, the ones that were fighting for the north. Many of those native Americans own black slaves. Justus those fighting for the South, So obviously slavery wasn't the driving issue. We're going to have to pick it up with John J. Dwyer there If you want Teo see about the war between the states go to John J.

As the Golden Nugget dignifying our history by telling their stories. We're talking about America's favorite pastime with Oklahoma's favorite player. Where are the clues?

He has a bronze statue at Bricktown Ballpark, but he has more world Siri's records than anybody. What is the Golden Nugget of this Oklahoma goal? John J. Dwyer. Well, it's going to be a little bit of a surprise. Gwen and you mentioned the world Siri's. I want Teo to share one other great feat that making Mantle accomplished in the last World Series game he ever played in dramatic seventh and final game of an epic duel between the ST Louis Cardinals in New York Yankees to the greatest teams of the era. The Yankees were behind six to nothing light in the game, and he was facing probably the greatest pitcher in the game. At that point, Bob Gibson of ST Louis who had just been wreaking havoc with the Yankees, the whole Siri's Mickey steps to the plate and smashes a three run homer. The ultimate clutch play against World Series MVP and Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson Light in that game. That blast launched a rally, which nearly won the game in the series for New York Bill. The Cardinal's outlasted his Yankees in a 7 to 5 thriller He hit Matt Mantle personally 300 for the Siri's and let all all other players and most other major major hitting categories for the whole Siri's, including R B eyes, But You know, making Mantle and this is kind of late in our guard Golden Nugget. He had qualities of the heart that few others possess. Aside from his great athletic skills and leadership, after growing up in a poor Oklahoma family during the Dust bowl and Great depression, his connection with Children during the many years of a super stardom was legendary..

"A treat for you. One of my very favorite guests is back tonight with a very, very special announcement. You know, over the past couple of years, it's been a real treat for me to have John J. Dwyer, historian and author on with Me to Talk about Special Oklahoma history stories. He actually grew up in Duncan and has taught history and ethics at Southern Nazarian University since 2006 Dr. Bob Blackburn, the executive director of the Oklahoma Historical Society, called John's historical narrative, The Oklahomans the best book on Oklahoma history ever. And you know, I'm not really anybody important, but I sure would agree. And very soon volume. Two of the Oklahomans will be coming out both e Oklahomans and short grass. John's Desta Ble World War two novel won the national Will Rogers Medallion. Award literary contest for Western literature. The Oklahoma newspaper ranked his latest book, The World War, two Epic Mustang sequel to Short Grass, the best selling fiction book in the State last summer. And as the Oklahoma Hall of Fame journalist Patrick Maguid dances of the City Centennial newspaper. Perhaps it's the greatest American War novel since the Red Badge of courage. Now, why did Mike so excited about having John Dwyer on Because he is such a great storyteller, And not only is he a great historian and author, but he is great on the radio, so because of that, we have a very special announcement. John J. Dwyer. Welcome to Katie. Okay in Oklahoma City. Thank you. Great toe. Be back with you and The great folks that listen to this radio station in this program on Sunday nights, Quinn cannot tell people have this magic that we're going to announce unfolded. The last time you were on with me. You were telling me Oklahoma history stories and you were saying all kinds of interesting things. And then you told me a story about a famous woman in Oklahoma history and it totally captivated me. Because I had never really heard of her or anything, And it gave me an idea. And lucky for me When I talk to you about the idea you thought it was a good idea to and what is that idea? John J. Dwyer, historian and award winning author. He'll never like. Put me on the spot, right? Well, it's your big announcement. Yes, well, well and it is. I'll go ahead and say, because it was your idea that was too To began a weekly every Sunday night 7 to 7:30 P.m. radio program called Oklahoma Gold. Where we will explore the good, the bad, the outrageous the heroic and the inspirational of Oklahoma history called Oklahoma Goals. And the thing that's so exciting is the way you craft a story and the way you put it in perspective, and you put things in context of the times and all that. It just makes me sit on the edge of my seat and I can hardly wait to no more. Yes, I am a native Oklahoma. I grew up in hard more. I took Oklahoma history and all of that, but somehow I did not capture this incredible enthusiasm that you have for Oklahoma history. Well, you know, I think going on a lot of folks probably better listening that Would agree that that sometimes the folks that move away from Oklahoma for a while like I did for a number of years, you've grown appreciate it even more and you come back and things that you took for granted when you're growing up here. You realize when you go other places while I took these things for granted that are really quite special that other people don't have it. It's not necessarily the things that big shots on TV and media and elsewhere. Thank are important, but it's ah lot of the things where those that have stayed here and those visions come back. Think. Wow, This is the type of place where I want to raise my kids and my grandkids be some of the intangibles, the traditional values that you don't necessarily get other places. Better still flourishing in Oklahoma. I think it's maybe one reason why I almost anybody I've ever talked to. This moved here when from some other place that they had lived in Oklahoma before when you asked What's the preeminent characteristic of Oklahoma and its people close to 100% of the time? What I hear is that they're friendly and course you not talked about before. There's probably a lot of streams that go into it. What makes this friendly part of which a CZ you not talk about the tragedies. The the heart breaks the the just crushing blows that we've received through our history. The last generation or two, it is is molded and melted us into a people. Well, obviously, we're not perfect. We have our flaws, but I think it's a compassionate people of people of value community. And I think more than ever in this year of 2020 where everything American is being challenged and is coming under fire being assaulted, I think here in Oklahoma, there's never been a more important time to explore. What is our true history eyes? It's something where we just woke up one day and we're all here and there's nothing really special other than we have to be born in a certain time and place and This is just where we are, or is there a back story of this? Quinn? Is there a story in night, even a unique and powerful story of the people that came from all sorts of places in a unique way in rural history over a period of time period generations. As we talked about before. Why is Oklahoma preeminently the land of the second bird? Sometimes last chance that goes for over many generations. Many different people, groups, Rice's languages that have come here and I would just say that this is the time So look at our history and learn it ourselves so that we can teach it to those younger than us. But it really is a history that is unique. It is special and it was worse standing up being proud of and even if necessary, defending when it comes under fire. Well said Now I know that the Oklahomans Volume One has already come out. And soon the Oklahomans volume two will be coming out. The first part of next year's that that correct Yes, yes, actually, with all that's happened all the You know the adventures we had this year. It's going to be getting released on statehood Day, November 16 next year, Glenn, which is just a little over a year, why But we'll just put it out there right now for folks, they're listening that are interested. We're gonna have an incredible celebration party at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City. We actually did that when volume one came out But there'll be some exciting people there speak, not least of which Dr Bob Black, early longtime executive director of the Oklahoma Historical Society, so we've got just a little more than a year before. Volume two comes out. But as we mentioned on this program before, between now and then we have a repository of stories. The You know the monthly Oklahoma history block that we put out many of the interviews you have done in the past. If folks go to our website, which is John J. Dwyer, it's middle initial J D W Y. E.
