MSC Adjunct Professor Lee Card Wins Award from Oklahoma Historical Society


A dissertation by Lee Card, Murray State College adjunct faculty member, has been selected as the year’s most Outstanding Dissertation on Oklahoma History by the Oklahoma Historical Society.

Card, who retired from the bench in 2015 after serving 28 years as Carter County’s associate district judge, completed “Scandal and Reform:  a Historical Study of Corruption and Reform in Oklahoma’s Court System, 1956-1967” in December 2016 as part of his Ph.D. in History from the University of Oklahoma in Norman. 

Card teaches state and local government courses, along with federal government courses and U.S. History for Murray State College at UCSO in Ardmore.

“We are extremely proud to have Lee Card as an adjunct professor at Murray State College and congratulate him on this great honor.  His education, knowledge and background offer students an extraordinary opportunity to learn more about the history of our nation and state,” Murray State College President Joy McDaniel said.

Card will be recognized by the Oklahoma Historical Society at its annual awards luncheon on April 28, 2017 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Catoosa, Okla.
