Editor's note: We're about to move into a new building, so we're taking inventory of everything in our current one. We've found all kinds of interesting old stories and we're sharing the best of them here.

School kids sang it, it inspired local fundraising efforts, and as Rick Wells shows us in this video from the KOTV Vault, Tulsans were "all in."
