After receiving three estimates, from Boyd Security, First Priority Alarm Systems, and Schaffner-Valouch Contractor, it became obvious that the camera installation was going to cost far more than anticipated. Estimates ranged from $1360-5800. Amy requested and received approval from the OHS grants coordinator to use $1360 of grant funds to pay for the installation of the security camera. Any costs over that amount will need to be paid by CCHS funds. First Priority Alarms, who gave us an estimate of $1360, has been booked to do the installation on September 24-25. The museum will be closed those two days.
Sue is working on a new book on behalf of CCHS. The book is about Griffin Memorial Hospital from 1890-1967, and Arcadia Publishing has already offered her a contract for it. Funds to support the research and purchase photos for the book will come from CCHS's Book Account. Publication date is expected to be September 2021 at the latest.
The Norman Arts Council's Subcommittee for Equity and Justice in the Arts has been looking for resources to learn about Norman's history as a sundown town. They have been very interested in Michael Givel's lecture sponsored by CCHS, but they have asked if there is a "part 2" to this, describing post-1960s race relations in Norman. Would any of our historians have any resources to suggest, or be willing to do some research and potentially write an article on the topic?
