"Oklahomans and Space" presented by Bartlesville Area History Museum

Monday, February 26, 2018

The Bartlesville Area History Museum continues to feature the seven-part series “Oklahomans and Space” during its upcoming Monday Movie event.

The 7th 60-minute episode, “To the Planets and Beyond,” is planned for Feb 26 from noon-1:00 p.m.

Bill Moore, author of the book "Oklahomans and Space," published by the Oklahoma Historical Society in 2011, is also the producer of the documentary series. Moore worked on this series for more than 14 years, beginning with an interview with the late Leroy Gordon Cooper in 2000. Moore retired from the Oklahoma Historical Society in 2009 but continued work on the project to complete it through a grant provided by the Pauline Dwyer Macklanburg and Robert A. Macklanburg, Jr. Foundation.

“This seven-part series presents the history of the space program through the stories of the Oklahomans who participated in it,” Moore said of the film, which was released in 2014.
