authentic 1957 Tulsarama items for sale
Tulsa Oklahoma is the second largest city in the State of Oklahoma. Tulsa was incorporated in 1898. Tulsa had a population of 1,390 in 1900, just two years later. As Tulsa grew, the Tulsa Commercial Club was formed, which was the forerunner of the Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. In 1957, the owner of this web site, Terrell William "Terry" Proctor, J.D., now a Houston attorney/mediator and former judge, worked for Tulsarama (that's me). Tulsarama was established by the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce to help Tulsa celebrate the Semi-Centennial celebration of Oklahoma Statehood. Oklahoma became a State in 1907. (see more on Tulsa lower on this page).
During the 1957 Semi-Centennial of Oklahoma Statehood, I was attending the University of Tulsa. I had lived in Tulsa from about 1943, attending Robert E. Lee Elementary School, Sidney Lanier Elementary School, Woodrow Wilson Jr. High School, Will Rogers High School all wonderful Tulsa, Oklahoma public schools. I then attended the University of Tulsa, where I obtained a B.S. in Business Administration Degree. I also completed all of my class room work on an M.B.A. Degree at the University of Tulsa.
In 1957 while I was attending the University of Tulsa, I was also working at the Tulsarama headquarters, which was an enterprise of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce. I was a member of the staff for Tulsarama. At the headquarters, we sold a number of things, including: Tulsarama Souvenir coins (these had been struck by the State of Oklahoma, which coin included on the obverse side the words "VISIT OKLAHOMA", "Golden Jubilee", "TULSARAMA", "TEEPEES TO TOWERS", and pictured a cowboy and an indian. The reverse side had the Oklahoma Flag Indian Shield, along with the words "OKLAHOMA 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION" 1907 1957 and other things). There was a similar coin struck for Oklahoma City, but I don't recall what the phrase was on that coin. I also don't recall if coins were struck for any city in Oklahoma other than Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
While I lived in Tulsa, besides professing not to know that Tulsa was not the largest city in Oklahoma; professing not to even know that there was a place called Oklahoma City, we at the same time told others that the difference between the two was that Tulsa was a small metropolis and Oklahoma City was a big cow town. I have to profess that the same rivalry exists now between Houston, Texas, where I now reside since 1959 and Dallas, Texas (only Houston really is the bigger city--the fourth largest in the nation in population).
I have a very limited number of these items remaining, which I have held in safe keeping for FIFTY (50) YEARS. I am willing to sell some of my collection at this time. I have prepared a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY which will be signed by me, to authenticate that each item is an original which I have had in my personal possession since 1957 when these items became my property. These are not replicas, but the real items. Some things like the Brothers of the Brush wooden nickels, I only have five of and hence the price of each which I am willing to sell is much higher than other items which I have a larger quantity of. The prices of these items are shown below with the item shown. I have included in the masthead above the entire collection of items. You may click on it or the Certificate of Authenticity for a full screen blow-up of that graphic.
