We will have three speakers from special collections around Oklahoma describe their collections and their institutions.  

First will be Christina Wolf, Archivist at the Dulaney-Browne Library of Oklahoma City University.  The OCU Archives collects and preserves historical materials for the United Methodist Church in Oklahoma, as well as the history of OCU.  In addition to these two main collections, the Archives also preserves the Shirk Oklahoma History Collection and other (surprising!) Special Collections.

Lorrie MonteiroThe Pigeon Museum preserves the rich heritage of the domestic pigeon, serves to educate those interested in bird life, and also serves as a repository for documents and artifacts related to the bird family Columbidae.  The Museum’s library also features of the personal libraries of several prominent pigeon devotees.   

Lorrie Monteiro is the curator of The American Pigeon Museum & Library in Oklahoma City located at 2300 NE 63rd St. She has been the curator there for 2 ½ years. She started working for the museum when it was located in the living room of a house on the property. She was hired to bring the museum to the new building, a new state of the art 5800 Sq. ft facility.

Lorrie’s background is in Anthropology and Public History. She has worked in various historical institutions developing and refining her curatorial and museum management skills. She has done archaeological field work in Texas and Oklahoma; worked at the Air Force Museum at Robins AFB, GA; Hillwood Museum and Gardens in Washington DC; Native American Press Archives at the University of Arkansas; Archaeological Survey at OU in Norman; Sam Noble Museum of Natural History; and worked as collections manager for a private collection owned by Chris Keesee.

Our third presentation will be from Kristi Carlucci, Director of Education at the Museum of Osteology, also located in Oklahoma City.  This museum exists to help educate area schools, groups and the general public about  form and function of the skeletal system, and to foster  appreciation of the natural world and, ultimately, to its conservation.  They display skeletons from all around the world, including “North American specimens ranging from tiny mice and shrew skeletons to a 40 foot humpback whale..
