Special Collections Director I. Marc Carlson, 1962-2022

Special Collections and University Archives is sad to announce that our department director, I. Marc Carlson, died on May 21st, 2022, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Marc worked at McFarlin Library for more than thirty-five years, spending fifteen of those in the archives. He loved his work dearly and was devoted to research in the areas of local and state history, with a special emphasis on historical shoemaking, the preservation of indigenous history, and the Tulsa Race Massacre.

He will be missed by his many friends and colleagues.

His obituary with more information about memorial services may be found here.
