Gov. Henry Comments on Death of Oklahoma Native John Hope Franklin

Oklahoma City_Press Release_Gov. Brad Henry made the following remarks about the death of celebrated historian John Hope Franklin, an Oklahoma native who died today at the age of 94:

"The world has lost a brilliant scholar. A proud Oklahoman, John Hope Franklin was among the greatest historians of our time. His seminal work, ‘From Slavery to Freedom,' is one of the great books of the 20th century, but John Hope Franklin's entire life was dedicated to the pursuit of truth. I was, and am, a devoted admirer of his work. This remarkable, legendary man will be sorely missed, but his contributions to our understanding of history will last forever."
