59th Annual ConferenceLas Vegas, October 16-19, 2019
The Helmerich Center for American Research (HCAR) opened on September 8, 2014, with the goal of permanently housing, preserving, and advancing scholarly research of the extensive and largely unexplored historical, cultural, and anthropological archival materials at the Gilcrease Museum. This collection contains more than 100,000 rare books, documents, maps and unpublished works, dating back to the time of Columbus, that detail the Spanish arrival in the Americas, as well as the New England colonies, Westward expansion and the experiences of America’s native peoples. They are offering short-term research fellowships and travel grants for scholars interested in doing research on our collections.
