85-Year-Old Message in a Bottle

by

Last month, a note dated September 21, 1933, was found during ongoing renovations at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The note, scribbled on an envelope from the Game and Fish Department, listed names of individuals and stated, “The above worked in this place on above date.”

Governor William H. Murray’s name adorned the letter, although not written by his own hand (noted below his name), followed by others who joined him that day.

There was work being done to the capitol at the time, but no one is certain of what brought these men to that particular part of the building.
