History Of Norman

In 1870, the 23-year-old surveyor Abner Norman and his crew came to the area in what is today the corner of Classen and Lindsey streets. The surveyor's crew set up camp there and burned the words NORMAN'S CAMP into an elm tree to taunt their younger supervisor. In 1887, the railway began service to the area. In 1889, settlers took part in a Land Run. The next morning a downtown was already being constructed and the settlers decided to keep the name Norman. The daily newspaper, the Norman Transcript, started the same year. In 1890, the University of Oklahoma was established in Norman. In 1891, the city of Norman was formally incorporated. In 1894, the fire department was established.

In 1919, the police department was established. In 1928, the actor James Garner was born in Norman. In 2005, a young student, who had gone through several severe bouts of depression, committed suicide using an explosive attached to his body. The blast took place less than 200 yards west of Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Over 84,000 spectators were attending a football game, but no one else was killed.
