Alfred Alexander Drummond (1896-1989) was a rancher and entrepreneurial oil landsman in Osage County and the Madill area.
Born in the Osage Nation when it was a part of Indian Territory, he grew up in Hominy where his father was a trader for the Osage Nation.
Drummond began as a cattle rancher but eventually amassed huge land holdings and widened his business interests to include oil and gas exploration and production.
The typed, printed, and handwritten materials in this collection include business and personal correspondence, legal and financial documents, newspapers, maps, photographs, audio tapes, and personal memorabilia.
The memorabilia include scrapbooks from his naval service in the Pacific aboard the USS Stewart when he visited India, Japan, and several Pacific Islands.
The cassette tapes are interviews conducted by Terry Hammons from 1978-1980 in preparation for his book on Drummond.
