Bibliography and Notes About the Information on this Site

Portrait of W. Wilson Rawls

The information used in this site was drawn from the materials collected by Madelaine Love in 1997 as a part of the "Woodrow Wilson Rawls: Dreams Can Come True" research project funded by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council and the Idaho Falls Public Library. She collected information and materials from Cherokee National Heritage Center, located in Oklahoma. Wilson Rawls' personal papers and manuscripts are housed there.

Ms. Love interviewed Sophie Rawls and others who knew Wilson. These people graciously lent her photographs to use with the traveling exhibit. This exhibit about Rawls toured selected Idaho libraries and schools in 1997. The original interview tapes and transcripts, copies of the original photographs and other materials collected by Ms. Love are housed in the Idaho Room of the Idaho Falls Public Library. The interviews and materials used on this site are listed below.
