The ephemera is comprised of press cuttings from Oklahoma newspapers and magazines and a variety of brochures and government publications, all of which is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Biographical / Historical
The Battle of Claremore Mound occurred in October 1817 when Western Cherokees and their allies attacked the lightly defended village of Chief Claremore (Gra-mo'n or Arrow Going Home), leader of the Arkansas Band of Osage. During the assault, many Osage died on an adjacent knoll where they had fled for safety. The hill, known as Claremore Mound, is located north of Sageeyah near the south bank of the Verdigris River in Rogers County.
