Don't upset the Governor!

Wizard of Oz material in Guthrie store

Guthrie was the original state capital for Oklahoma territory ... but lost out to Oklahoma City in a referendum in 1910 ... the move was largely driven by the first state governor Gov Haskell, who was being heavily criticised by Frank Greer, the Editor of the Oklahoma Daily newspaper, based in Guthrie.

PS Found an excellent fabric shop in Guthrie selling an extensive range of Wizard of Oz material ... so anyone wanting to make a Dorothy quilt, contact (she ships abroad).
