100th Interview


This is the 100th interview for the oral history website Voices of Oklahoma and it features two ladies who have lived over one hundred years. Rather than selecting a certain individual for this distinction, we chose to interview Opal Moss who is 103 and Vida Culvern 102.

Opal’s story begins in 1917 when she became a resident of the Charles Page Children’s Home in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Vida came to Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1968 from Colorado.

These two ladies are very social and active in their communities. Listen and take tips from them, perhaps you will live to be one hundred.

We have a good start on the next one hundred oral histories, having recorded seventy stories which will be placed on our website, as we work to attain our next goal of two hundred.

So enjoy our two centenarians in our 100th interview, made possible by individuals, foundations, and the University of Tulsa, who believe in preserving Oklahoma’s legacy, one voice at time, on Voices of Oklahoma.com.
