Missiles of Oklahoma
Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford hosted a free “Missiles of Oklahoma” seminar on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 7:00 pm in the Fine Arts Center featuring nationally-known author Michael Dobbs and SWOSU history instructor Landry Brewer.
The event coincides with the 55th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The seminar’s genesis started with Brewer’s research and presentation on the several Atlas missile sites, which were active in southwestern Oklahoma during the early 1960s. These missiles went on active alert during the crisis in October 1962.
