Archived photos from three decades of TulsaPeople Magazine
1. All Sports Ball co-chairs Mary and Jim Bush and the late Lo Detrich, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation spokeswoman, are surrounded by invitations to the October 2000 All Sports Ball, in this TulsaPeople photo published the same month. The popular CFF fundraiser featured barbecue, music, and silent and live auctions.
2. The Tulsa Gridiron, a musical satire on politics and current events, marked its 66th year in 1998. With the theme “Political Follies of 1998 ... The Tulsa Project, The Titanic and Other Disasters,” the show was produced by the Tulsa Press Club at what is now the Cox Business Center. In one skit, Kelly Thayer, left, as Hillary Clinton, confronts Lou Hays, cast as Newt Gingrich’s mother. Thayer’s T-shirt reads, “That’s Ms. Bitch to You!” This photo and accompanying article were the March 1998 cover story of TulsaPeople.
Also published in the October 2000 issue was this photo of Tulsa Ballet’s founder and artistic director emerita, the late Moscelyne Larkin, center, with producer/director Shawnee Brittan and producer Joanna M. Champlin at the preview of “En Pointe: The Lives and Legacies of Ballet’s Native Americans.” The event honored Larkin at the Gilcrease Museum.
