Tulsa Historical Society volunteers are known officially as the Guardians. Guardian volunteers support our mission to collect, preserve and present Tulsa’s history by providing assistance to staff in daily operations and special projects. Service as a Guardian gives individuals an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Tulsa’s history, an opportunity to work in a beautiful environment and an opportunity to join with a friendly committed group of people who share a passion for Tulsa’s history.
